6. Can I get funding through DonorsChoose.org?
Setting up requests on DonorsChoose.org is best for teachers with previous experience using DonorsChoose.org. You can set up a campaign for Language Lizard's bilingual resources via DonorsChoose.org. Here is information from a representative at DonorsChoose outlining how to go about that:
Teachers may request products from Language Lizard by submitting a Special Request project through DonorsChoose.org. Special Request projects allow teachers with previous experience on our site to purchase resources outside of our integrated vendors. You can learn more about DonorsChoose Special Request process by reading this help center article. If any teachers have questions about the Special Request process, they may write into [email protected] and the team will be happy to help.
