Purchasing materials when a project is partially funded

DonorsChoose.org cannot make any purchases until funding is 100% complete. If your project doesn’t reach its funding goal or is removed after receiving any donations, the donations from your friends and family will be sent to you as DonorsChoose.org gift codes that you can use toward your next project. Any other donors will be sent an email with options to allocate their funds to another project or to send their donation to the original project’s teacher as a DonorsChoose.org gift code.

If your project expires without full funding and the requested items are still needed in your classroom, you are more than welcome to create and submit a new version of your project.
