Charles Best leads DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization that provides a simple, personal, and accountable way for people to address educational inequity. At DonorsChoose.org, public school teachers post classroom project requests, and donors can pick the projects they want to support. Every donor then gets photographs and thank-you letters from the classroom he or she chose to help.
Charles launched the organization in 2000 at Wings Academy, an alternative public high school in the Bronx, N.Y., where he taught social studies for five years. Today teachers at half of all the public schools in the nation have had at least one teacher post a project to DonorsChoose.org, whose supporters include board members Stephen Colbert and Bill Bradley, as well as Oprah Winfrey and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
