Updated November 28th 5:30PM ET: This opportunity has 50% of it's funding remaining.
Starting November 28th at 7AM ET, all projects will receive a 1.5X match on new donations. That means a $40 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.
How to qualify:
- Have a project live on the site by November 28th
Frequently Asked Questions:
New credit card, PayPal, account credit, and gift card donations to live projects are eligible for this match once it begins. 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.
If you’re a teacher new to DonorsChoose, then you’ll need to register an account before you can create a project! Once you’ve created your project, you need to submit it to our volunteer review team. Most projects are reviewed and posted within five days of being submitted. Once our team has approved your project, then it’s live and ready to receive donations! All projects that are approved before November 28th will receive the match.
We’re aiming to make sure that as many projects as possible that were submitted before November 28th, 2023 are approved in time for this match. It often takes 5 days for a project to be screened, and it may take longer during this busy time of year. We recommend submitting your project ASAP for the best chance at getting it approved in time!
If your project is approved on our site, you’re all set! On November 28th, you should see a 1.5X indicator on your project, showing that all donations you receive that day will be matched. If the 1.5X indicator is not on your project, then you don’t have the match. Any of your older projects that are already approved will also be eligible, so long as they do not expire before November 28th.
Some projects qualify for multiple match offers; in that case, those projects will receive the match for which they currently qualify, instead of this one-day-only match.
The match will only appear after 7:00 AM ET on November 28th. If your project isn’t yet approved, the match offer will not be applied until after approval by our screening team. Please note, the match offer will not appear during Friends and Family Pre-Funding (the period after you’ve submitted a project but before our team has reviewed your project).
No! If you already have a project, you’re all set! If you have more than one project, the additional projects will also qualify.
