 In 2010, DonorsChoose.org grew to 250,000 donors, who gave roughly $30 million to support 60,000 classroom projects. Bronx science teacher Steve Oszust has successfully raised more than $125,000 with his knack for catchy headlines — "No Bones About It!" atop a post asking for a model skeleton. Thanks to the campaigns, he has created an elective in environmental studies and started a tennis club. His students talk about what the donations have meant to them.

"The school's very poor. When they donate stuff, we're like, 'Oh cool, where'd you get that from?'"
