I see that DonorsChoose partners with a small amount of vendors to provide resources that teachers and classrooms need. I know that smaller companies that aren't a DonorsChoose vendor are redirected to sell on Amazon, or operate on some sort of points system making it difficult to purchase wanted product from smaller suppliers. This makes prices greater for the teachers and classrooms needing money and, innately, the money they raised cannot go as far. Is it possible to host more vendors in order to keep prices down? It'd be nice if we stopped feeding the beast that is Amazon and were able to diversify offerings, especially regarding STEM and active seating. You pride yourselves on getting "special pricing" therefore I hope this request is HEARD in order to better serve the teachers, classrooms, and students in need.
