Yahoo has launched Yahoo Homepages for Homerooms, a program aimed at helping teachers and classrooms get funding for projects.
Users can help teachers receive funding for projects by making Yahoo their homepage. The Yodel Anecdotal blog offers more details. “Through Yahoo Homepages for Homerooms, public school teachers are eligible to receive funding from Yahoo if they have a project posted on DonorsChoose.org, a renowned education nonprofit through which public school teachers can request funds for needed classroom items – books, art supplies, a projector, you name it!."
“Yahoo will provide full project funding (up to $600 per project) to the projects that receive the most Yahoo.com homepages. We’ll fund up to $350,000 by the end of the year.”
Yahoo Homepages for Homerooms runs from November 19 through Dec 23.
