Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

As a teacher, Charles Best found himself often spending his own money to supply his classroom.

Out of this experience grew the idea for DonorsChoose.org. As the organization explains, "DonorsChoose.org makes it easy to help classrooms in need. Public school teachers post classroom project requests which range from pencils for poetry to microscopes for mitochondria."

Thus far, the organization has raised more than $292M and helped more than 13M students.
