Removing or deleting an active project

Through your teacher account, you can remove any project that's currently available for funding.

Before removing a project, read the guidelines below. If you're comfortable with these guidelines, you can remove any project, with the exception of Class Trip and Class Visitor requests.

Just use the "Remove this project" button next to the project in your teacher account. Please note the following:

  • Removal is permanent and irreversible. The project will be archived and moved to the “Project archive” section of your teacher account, where you can view it but you won't be able to edit or repost it.
  • The points you used to submit this project will be returned to your teacher account. You can use these points to post another project in the future.
  • When you remove a project, any donations will be returned to the donors as DonorsChoose.org account credits. (If any friends and family made donations, they'll have the option to send you a gift card to use toward your next project.)

Removing a Class Trip or Class Visitor Project

Because of the resources required to process Class Trip and Class Visitor projects, we prefer to handle these removals on a case-by-case basis. Contact our team to remove a Class Trip or Class Visitor request.
