Starting August 28th, qualifying projects will receive a 2X match on new donations. That means a $20 donation will become a $40 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.
How to qualify:
- Teach in one of the following Illinois counties: Adams, Brown, Cass, Greene, Hancock, Mcdonough, Morgan, Pike, Scott, and Schuyler
- Request under $1,200 for your total project goal, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose

Q: Are there any restrictions on which donations are matched?
All new donations to live projects are eligible for this match. Previous donations placed before the match offer’s start date will not be matched.
