Google has fully funded the classroom requests of every Los Angeles Unified School District teacher on the education crowd-funding site DonorsChoose.org. As a result of Google’s nearly $1 million donation, 769 Los Angeles teachers will receive materials for their 75,108 students — ranging from paper, pencils and books to laptops, musical instruments and microscopes.
“We are so humbled and grateful to Google for their devotion to our teachers and students,” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org, who also saw similar funding sprees by Google over the past few months for San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Austin, and Kansas City.
In addition to their project funding initiatives, Google has also supported several DonorsChoose.org programs over the years, including a $5 million AP STEM Access program, which launched over 500 new AP STEM courses at high poverty schools nationwide.
