I've been checking the pages for the School and Military Donation Programs since I joined, hoping to donate to them, but they haven't had any programs listed. Do new programs usually show up at a certain time of year?
Here's the info from the FAQ's on the Books for Schools Program:
The first Books for Schools program went live on November 23, 2009. Round Two went live on 12/15/2009, and Books for Schools 2010 went live on 11/15/2010.
So, in the fall to winter months are when you should be looking. The schools get their donation quotas filled quickly, too. There are many people here that are generous with their credits, so you have to be quick. I missed it when they did it in 2009, but was lucky enough to get my donation in this past fall. As for the military one, they've not had one in a while. Not sure if they will start it up again--I'd love them to, though. I'm all for donating to worthy causes!
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the little apple icons last for a year, so if I were not to donate next year, my icon would no longer be there. I think the eagles work the same way. They show you donated in the last round of their donation drive.
Hope that gives you some more information. Sorry I can't give you an exact date!
