At, we are lucky to have the continued support of so many teachers in Worcester — both in the public and private school systems.

As part of our effort to help continue the discussion of what our school system needs, here we will take a look at what the teachers in Worcester need for their classrooms. – an online crowdfunding organization that connects teachers in high-need communities with independent donors that want to help – is a popular tool to raise money for much needed classroom equipment and programs, as requested by individual classroom teachers.

We will have a growing list of projects from Worcester teachers here. We encourage our readers to donate if and when they can. When a project is fully funded, we will make a special announcement.

Since there are nearly 200 active projects from Worcester teachers on, we will publish 20 at a time and update the list each week. Some of the projects below are partially funded and some are currently doubling donations. Please take a look at each project!

Week 1 Series – THIRTEEN projects fully funded!

Week 2 Series – THREE projects fully funded!
