On Aug. 16 the Sun reported on local crowdfunding efforts on DonorsChoose.org, a site that allows public school teachers to raise money for projects and supplies.

There were 27 active campaigns at the time. Since then nine have been fully funded.

Two projects were successfully funded at Woodland Academy, one each at Abby Kelley Foster Charter, Burncoat High, Claremont Academy, Doherty High, Goddard School, Rice Square School and Sullivan Middle.

Projects at Grafton Street School and Vernon Hill School closed without reaching their goals.

Since our original report, however, 14 new projects have been launched. Six campaigns have been launched at Vernon Hill School, two at Gates Lane School, and one each at Belmont Street Community School, Elm Park Community School, Grafton Street School, Mill Swan School, Rice Square and Roosevelt School.

The total cost of the 30 active projects is $26,518.59, of which $23,695.69 remains to be raised.

Fourteen of the projects have less than $500 remaining to meet their goal; 23 have less than $1,000. Eleven have yet to receive any donations.

Just a reminder: DonorsChoose.org is a registered 501(c)3 charity, meaning gifts are tax deductible.
