We built a website that enables teachers to see as they are composing their request the probability that their project will be funded based on a number of parameters including:
- Items requested
- Total price
And several other factors. This allows teachers to much better understand what items to ask for to maximize their probability of success.
DonorsChoose is a website that enables teachers to supplement their budget and ask their friends to help purchase supplies. Commonly requested items include:
- Technological Equipment
- Field Trips
Once they put up a post, the project stays up until it is completely funded, at which point the items are purchased and mailed to the teachers. Teachers can see in real time the effect that different items requested, location.
