Upcoming Site Maintenance

On Sunday, June 23 starting around 7am, DonorsChoose.org will be unavailable while our engineering team works on improvements to our site speed and reliability. We expect the site to be unavailable for much of the day. Thanks for your patience!

Using your account credits to donate to a project

Once logged in to your DonorsChoose.org account, using your account credits is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

To use your credits:

1. Choose a classroom project.

2. Type the total amount you’d like to give and press enter. 

3. Proceed through checkout, signing in as a returning user if prompted.

The account credits will be recognized during the checkout process.

We won't ask for credit card information unless you're donating more than your account credit balance. If you are being asked for your credit card information, but your donation amount does not exceed the account credits available, make sure you are signed in to your account before proceeding! 

Once signed in, you'll find the total of your account credits in the top right-hand corner of every page next to your name, and also on the right-hand side of your "private info" tab. If you originally donated using a gift code, you no longer need the code.

Account credits cannot be applied at the same time as pledging a check donation.
