How it works: selective funding opportunities

A Selective Funding opportunity is an offer from a corporation or foundation that is not automatically applied to projects. The funder is offering to put a certain amount of money (e.g. $100) towards selected projects that meet very specific criteria.

Please read these offers carefully as they are usually more specific and narrow with their criteria. There is no special application process for this funding, so just submit your project at DonorsChoose.org for consideration. If selected, funding will be applied directly to your project within two weeks of posting!

A list of current funding opportunities is distributed to all registered teachers monthly via our teacher newsletter. You can also view these opportunities via our match offers page.
