Digital Wish makes school fundraising easier

“When those wishes start to get granted, either a teacher will buy for themselves, the school will buy for the teacher, or the PTA will buy for the teacher because of the discounts we have up on the site,” said Chirtea.

In addition, Digital Wish provides teachers with a lesson plan database, which educators can contribute to.

“Every time a teacher submits a new lesson plan, we monitor [it]. If we see one that we think is really good, we put it up in the national library,” Chirtea said. The site’s national library currently contains more than 500 lesson plans, with far more in the individual school websites. Teachers are able to use any lesson plan they find interesting.

Digital Wish serves nonprofit institutions as well as public schools. To register, teachers need to have their school’s tax identification number.
