Updated October 13th 2023: This funding opportunity is no longer available.
Starting September 14th, 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 at an Equity Focus School in San Antonio, Texas
- You’ve never had a project funded on DonorsChoose
- Request under $2,000 for your total project goal, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose
Frequently Asked Questions:
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.
Q: What is an Equity Focus School?
Equity Focus Schools on DonorsChoose are schools where 50% or more of students are Black, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, or multiracial, and 50% or more of students qualify for free or reduced price lunch, the standard measure for school economic need level.
