Educators in Durham, N.C., who receive money through DonorsChoose.org have been promised matching funds from a local group called DurhamCares -- helping teachers get resources to their students more quickly. One elementary-school teacher said he used $180 in donations to install Web cameras in several classrooms. Now, fifth-grade students are reading to kindergartners on another side of the building and communicating with students around the world.
