Update August 16 12:35PM ET: This funding opportunity is now over.
Update August 15 6PM ET: This funding opportunity is about halfway spent.
Starting August 15th at 7AM ET, projects from every school will receive a 1.5X match on new donations from their region’s SONIC Drive-In. That means a $20 donation will become a $30 donation, and so on. New donations on your project will be matched while funds last. Funding may run out in some regions sooner than others. This article will be updated as fund amounts change.
How to qualify:
- Have a DonorsChoose project posted.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I already have a project on the site. Do I need to post a new one?
No! If you already have a project, you’re all set! If you have more than one project, the additional projects will also qualify.
Q: Is there a limit to how expensive my project can be to qualify for this match?
This match only applies to projects with a total project goal under $50,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.
Q: Are there any restrictions on which donations are matched?
Credit card, PayPal, account credit, and gift card donations to live projects are eligible for this match. Donations via check and donor-advised fund (DAF) will not be matched due to processing time. Previous donations placed before the match offer’s start date will not be matched. Please note, the match offer is not active for donations during Friends and Family Pre-Funding (the period when our team is reviewing projects).
