Since 2015, Inspirus has given more than $310,000 through DonorsChoose.org! By partnering with this organization, and with the help of our members, we have funded close to 1,000 projects and helped over 60,000 students. This year, we plan to give back even more! The credit union has pledged close to $125,000 to directly support local teachers' projects on DonorsChoose.org.
What is DonorsChoose.org?
DonorsChoose.org is the leading platform for giving to public schools. Teachers across America use the site to create projects requesting resources their students need, and donors give to the projects that inspire them. Since its founding by a Bronx teacher in 2000, more than 2 million people and partners have given $546 million to projects reaching 23 million students. The DonorsChoose.org team vets each project request and ships resources directly to the school. Inspirus Credit Union has partnered with the organization to bring supplies to Washington classrooms and help students succeed. We fully fund at least one project every Friday through our #FundFriday campaign.
