For Educators

ING Unsung Heroes Award

Each year, K-12 educators submit applications for an ING Unsung Heroes grant by describing projects that utilize new teaching methods and techniques that improve learning. Each project is judged on its:

  • innovative method
  • creativity
  • ability to positively influence students

One hundred finalists will be selected to receive a $2,000 grant, payable to both the winning teacher and his or her school. At least one grant is awarded in each of the 50 states, provided that at least one qualified application was received from each state. Three are selected for additional financial awards of $25,000, $10,000 and $5,000.

Ask for what you need to fund your classroom projects at DonorsChoose. Do you have a project idea, but no hope of getting it funded because of tight budgets? Just write a one page essay describing the activity or program your students need and the exact resources required. Your project will be screened to see if it meets the eligibility requirements. If it does, it will be posted on the website. Potential donors can then choose a project for funding. DonorsChoose wishes to tap your knowledge of what is really needed. The website allows ordinary people with small amounts of money to help you.

Deadline: Teachers can apply throughout the year.
