Bing’s New Education Map Apps

As part of the Our School Needs campaign, Bing released two new mapping applications focused on supporting schools across the U.S. through funding and volunteer efforts.

DonorsChoose.org Map App: Identifies and highlights school projects that are looking for funding to help people find and support classroom projects in their community. Through the application, people can explore and donate by location, subject area, funding required, and other criterion. Schools, school districts, and donors can also put a DonorsChoose Bing Map on their own website to spread the word.

Bing Education Map App
: Displays local school information and mentor, donation, and volunteer opportunities in their neighborhoods. This application has features from Mentor Pro, Great Schools, and DonorsChoose.org.
