Supporting Strangers: Which State Gives the Most to Your State?

This post was published in July 2018 and was updated in February 2020.

More than half of the donations on DonorsChoose come from a supporter who’s never met the teacher they’re giving to. For teachers, the magic of knowing someone you’ve never met supports you, your classroom, and your students is priceless.

 DonorsChoose allows me as an educator to connect with people across the country who understand the importance of these materials and generously fund projects to obtain them. There is a sense of community and endless support from donors. It makes me feel valued as an educator. Mrs. Rodriguez-Calzada, Illinois

We’re a data-driven organization, so naturally we wanted to put some numbers behind this feeling to figure out who the biggest supporters were of each state (and Washington DC).  It turns out that New Yorkers love giving to their neighbors in Connecticut. Landlocked Hoosiers are especially generous to Hawaiian teachers. South Carolinians support their neighbors to the North, and vice versa. Our friends in Wyoming are spreading the love across the southwest.
