Starting September 12th, 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 any of the grades 3rd – 8th at an Equity Focus School

- All states are currently available for funding. As funding runs out in states, this section will be updated.
