Double Your Impact on tolerance projects, thanks to an anonymous funder

Starting May 2, an anonymous funder is matching donations to qualifying projects that promote and teach about tolerance.  

Teachers know that tolerance can blossom in the classroom, and we want to see your best ideas for fostering tolerance among your students and your communities!  Maybe that’s a field trip to a history museum, a class set of autobiographies, or something else that’s unique to your area.  Check out these examples for inspiration:

Innovative projects focused on teaching tolerance will also be eligible to win a $10,000 DonorsChoose.org Tolerance Prize.  Recognizing that teaching tolerance looks different in different communities, classrooms will be considered for one of three separate prizes: one for urban schools, one for suburban schools, and one for schools in rural settings.

Here’s how to qualify:

  • Enter the campaign code TOLERANCE on the “HI” screen of the project creation process (click "Got a campaign code?" at the bottom, and enter TOLERANCE as shown below). If you're submitting a Professional Development project, you won't be able to use a campaign code. Instead, use the word "tolerance" somewhere in your project.

  • Create a project that requests resources that will help you teach about tolerance and help your students promote acceptance in and out of the classroom
  • Mention any noteworthy details about your students, their communities, and what makes your classroom special
  • Keep your total project goal under $850
