I came across Donors Choose this morning, a site that is facilitating donations for mini classroom grants.

Check out the quick breakdown of what can be requested, the participating vendors, and description of the point system. 100% for Kids is a similar, local charity, but you can only be awarded once per year.
Just a copule of classroom grant ideas that can supplement or attempted in place of the Qwest Classroom Grants. I’ll share more as I come across them.
