DonorsChoose Gifts

Thanks to gift cards provided by CMS and DonorsChoose, the neighborhood association was able to make contributions to specific projects at three area schools.
Our largest gift was to West Charlotte High School, which had requested a donation that will make full-color, take-home worksheets available to students for their study of human anatomy.
Mrs. F., the instructor who will utilize this donation, writes: "Thank you for giving my students the opportunity to gain the most knowledge they can in Medical Science, by seeing things in different colors ... This will really aid in my teaching and their understanding of structures of the human body ... I am so excited that you have helped to make our dreams come true ... We all are so excited and ready to get started. I am planning lessons already to utilize our new technology. Thank you once again for your generous donation."
The project was eligible for a matching grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which allowed the project to be fully funded with our seed donation.
