Now is a great time to seek funding for a project on Donors Choose! Many companies participate in flash funding this time of year to get those last minute tax write-offs completed. Dozens of Cobb teachers (like the two above) have funded amazing educational experiences for their students by appealing to people who want to give back to their communities through their schools. Your kids can even help you develop and submit your idea. Start here: http://www.donorschoose.org/teachers
