At the DonorsChoose.org event on 4/22/09, Stephen Colbert admits to NYC public school students that he was stuck in lockers. At the event, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced a grant of $4.1 million to DonorsChoose.org as matching gifts for contributions to student projects that help them prepare for college. Colbert, a board member and supporter of the non-profit, explained how this online organization allows teachers to request needed funding from individual donors for classroom projects not covered by school budgets.
