School Donation, Inc. - a Philadelphia-based firm - has created an innovative mechanism for donating books and supplies to local schools. Here's how it works: Schools/teachers identify requested books and supplies, which get posted on the School Donation website. Donors then browse the site and purchase requested materials commensurate with budgets and priorities. Donors get a receipt for tax-deduction purposes and will receive a thank-you from the recipient of the donation. Also, donated materials can be labeled, indicating the source of the donation. For more information, please go to their website and click on the "Donation Demonstration" link to view simulated donating activities. School Donation, Inc. is working to bring participants on-line, but does not currently offer donating opportunities. If your school would like to participate in the School Donation, Inc. program, please contact them using the "Contact Us" tab on the left of their home page.
