aquarium donations for nyc public schools

I have made this forum before when I was younger and inexperienced. I'm older wiser and more experienced now and would still like to do this. I realize there must be transparency with the whole process so
-I'm thinking about creating a website page to list all the donators and their donations.
-I'm all over New York every day and can pick up most of the donations almost any time.
-I can store equipment but not large aquariums
-I can install and service it for free on weekends (Will only do queens schools)


Anything I'm missing? I already know people will donate and honestly if they don't I'm sure I have at least 1 aquariums worth of extra stuff I can put together.

Now.... how do i go about doing this... I'm thinking I should call the school now.

Hi Aquadicted - --This idea is great and I hope it has taken root. I teach in an NYC public HS and have a marine biology class. I have at least one student in one of my marine biology elective who is quite adept with corals and has tanks at home. I hope to establish a useful learning tank , perhaps frags, for the classes in my room. FOWLR would be nice, but I think there's more to learn about/from in a coral tank. Any ideas/tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
