Update August 25th: matching funding is no longer available in Duval County, Florida. The one-time donation for male teachers of color is still available.
Update July 27th: funding is no longer available in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Starting July 25th, 2023, all qualifying projects will receive a 3X match, and male teachers of color will receive an additional donation. That means a $20 donation will become a $60 donation, and so on.
If your project meets the criteria below, new donations on your project will be matched as long as funding remains. You will see the match offer applied to your project as soon as it is approved and live on the site. Please note, the match offer will not appear during Friends and Family Pre-Funding (the period when our team is reviewing your project).
