What happens if your recipient doesn't redeem the gift card you purchase?

DonorsChoose.org gift cards expire six months after the purchase date. If you have provided an email address for your recipient, they'll receive an email reminder if the gift card is unredeemed 30 days after purchase.

Gift cards have expiration dates to encourage recipients to redeem them sooner rather than later. If the gift card is unredeemed at the time of expiration, the funds will be applied to urgent classroom projects in need on the website.
