New on EveryBlock: classroom fundraisers

Jul272011

We’ve added a new data source in each of our 16 cities, one that fits particularly well with our new motto of ‘make your block a better place.’

In their own words, DonorsChoose.org is “on online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.” In short, it’s a service that lets you find public schools to donate to, at the level of specific teacher and project. We think we’re in a great position to help promote DonorsChoose projects, given our focus on neighborhood-level news and community improvement.

Starting now, you’ll see “Classroom fundraisers” in your EveryBlock homepage and e-mails. We’ll let you know whenever DonorsChoose.org has published a new project for a school in your followed places. (To ensure that you’ll see this, click on “manage news types” under your account tab and make sure “Classroom fundraisers” is checked.)

As always, we welcome your thoughts on this and all other site news at feedback@everyblock.com.
