2X Match on Hurricane Harvey Recovery

The weekend of August 25, Hurricane Harvey began to cut a destructive path through the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast. Schools have been damaged by the storm and continue to be affected, and students and teachers will need our help to rebuild.  Thanks to funding from our community, projects from the Texas counties receiving assistance from FEMA can qualify for a 2X Match, and will receive full funding once a week.

Projects from the 53 counties below can receive matched donations from a donor who cares about Texas.  Teachers: mention the impact of the hurricane in your community in your essay, and you'll see the match offer applied to your project as soon as it's live.  Once a week, we'll fully fund all eligible submissions.
