DonorsChoose | Innovative NPO: Help Public School Students in Need is an innovative online nonprofit that makes it easy to help fund great learning projects for kids in some of the US’s poorest public schools. It’s a great system, allowing you to make a specific donation according to what projects teachers are asking for on the site (which also means it can be as big or as small a donation as you would like to make). And with causes being sorted into locations, subjects, resources and categories such as ‘Most Urgent’, ‘Lowest Cost, and ‘Highest Poverty’, the donating process couldn’t be easier.

The projects being funded by guys ‘n’ gals like you or me range from touchscreen learning on tablet PCs, to essential textbooks, to transportation for a school dance team to a live performance. Literally anything. And each request is a very personal one by a teacher or his or her students. So that means that if you’re teaching in a public school and you would really love to improve your kids’ education, you gotta get your cause onto this site!

Pictures like the ones to either side of this show you just how much it means when someone donates and provides kids with opportunities they just wouldn’t have had before. Click here, or on any of them to see how you can help, or get helped by this lovely website 🙂

Get involved and check out this great nonprofit,

Don’t forget to check out the AllMyFaves NPO Directory; linking you to many of America’s most popular NPOs, and some great causes you haven’t heard of.

Bellstrike – Free, Instant Websites for Non-Profits

“No Learning Requred”. That’s the mantra that Bellstrike – a super little site allowing you to create and maintain a gorgeous, professional website for your NPO in minutes – is sticking to fervently. And it’s true as well. If you’ve started up your own non-profit, but are dreading having to create a big website, hire designers, talk with servers and other unspoken horrors, I can’t think of a better way to get yourself out there than with a Bellstrike site! Watch the video to see how it could help you.

The sign up and set up is completely free, there’s no monthly fees, and you’ll only be paying for the site if it brings in donations. They take 6% of the online donations you make, and it’s capped at $80 a month, so you’ll never be giving them more than that. Pretty reasonable really! Click here if you’re interested in the idea, or if you’re running a non-profit and could do with a better, free website, that allows you to instantly accept online credit card donations, and spread the word on all the usual social networks.

Now speaking of charity, I couldn’t possibly talk about a site for non-profits without mentioning The All My Faves Visual NPO Database. It’s got all the top US Non-Profits, listed in their individual categories, making it easy for you to find interesting causes to donate to, research or volunteer for.

Signing up is super quick and easy, and once you add a card to the SwipeGood service, you can start helping your choice of organizations instantly. What a great idea! We loved it.
