Celebrating the most innovative teachers on February 28!

Fast Company just named DonorsChoose.org one of 2019’s Most Innovative Companies — so we’re celebrating the world’s most innovative teachers!

Anonymous donor is supporting select schools across 13 states

An anonymous donor is eager to support schools across thirteen states! If your school hasn’t been funded by DonorsChoose.org in the last five years and is in one of the following 33 counties, create a project for anything your classroom needs and qualify for a first $500 donation.

Here’s how to qualify:

  • Teach at one of the public schools listed below.
  • Create a DonorsChoose.org account.
  • Post a project with a total goal of $1,000 or less (or about $750 in materials).
  • You’ll see a donation of $500 arrive on your project within one week of it being posted.

Create your project

One project per teacher can qualify for this opportunity.

What can I request?

Any project with a total goal of $1,000 (or about $750 in materials) qualifies for this offer. As long as your goal is below $1,000, the sky’s the limit! You can request books, classroom furniture, supplies, technology, or anything else that your classroom needs.

When will my donation appear?

If your project meets the qualifying criteria here, you’ll see a $500 donation from your anonymous donor appear on your project within two weeks of your project being posted.

Qualifying schools: 

Select schools from the following states:

  • Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ohio, Oregon, Washington
