Throughout the year, the Core Collaborative makes contributions to support student-centered learning in schools across the nation.

One of our favorite go-to resources is Donors Choose because of the authentic projects that thousands of teachers are looking to fund. Any donation amount makes a difference and it feels fantastic to know we helped a classroom reach a fundraising goal.

I love, love, love Donors Choose, and the ability to give back to the communities and schools we serve. – Tony Francoeur, TCC CFO, and Co-Founder
