Charles Best

CEO, DonorsChoose.org

Charles Best founded DonorChoose.org while working as a history teacher in a Bronx public high school. While teaching in an underfunded school, Best and his colleagues had great ideas for projects but lacked the funding to follow through on them. DonorChoose.org is a crowdsourced platform for teachers looking for micro-funding for their school projects.

I believe if we can crowdsource educational solutions to teachers on the front lines, who often know their kids better than anyone, we will unearth and generate better targeted smarter ideas.
