What it does: This crowd-funding platform, akin to GoFundMe, has a laser-sharp focus: fundraising for public school classrooms. Founded in 2000 by a high school history teacher in the Bronx, the site allows teachers nationwide to post funding requests for all kinds of supplies, from robotics kits to books to printer ink. To date, donors have given more than $800 million to underfunded classrooms through DonorsChoose.
