This site is for any teacher/staff member. Katie Petty is a HS teacher who has used this site before to get some supplies for her new kitchen. As an educator, you can both donate to the site to support other teachers'/schools' projects or you can request funding for your own project. The best thing to do is to go to the site and experiment around and get a feel for it. Should you want to proceed by requesting funding, talk with Ben Barry as he has some contacts that have done this before and could give you some advice or tips.
