Codesters is on Donors Choose!

School funding is often far too tight, even for programs that teach invaluable 21st century skills like coding and computer science. Donors Choose is an innovative platform that addresses critical gaps in funding by enabling teachers and administrators to start crowdfunding campaigns to raise money for worthwhile programs without having to go through the school budget rigmarole.

Codesters always strives to be affordable – starting at just $10 per student – and now teachers can bring coding to their classrooms with the help of Donors Choose. And, for the first 20 Donors Choose projects that fundraise for a classroom set of Codesters curriculum, Codesters will match dollar-for-dollar any funds that are raised. A classroom set of 30 licenses to Intro to Coding in Python part 1 is $250 on Donors Choose, which means that the first 20 teachers who raise $125 can start teaching coding right away.

We are proud to be on Donors Choose, a platform that has been filling in the budgetary gaps for educators for years. Learn more about Donors Choose, or get started with your Codesters Donors Choose project, here. (Note: when you are creating your Donors Choose project you will find Codesters in the AKJ Education catalog.)

And please support Donors Choose projects to bring Codesters to schools by going to our Donors Choose Giving Page.
