Update 9/15: Tom's of Maine has extended their support for projects that explore environmental science concepts! We will update this page again when funding is running low.
The Tom’s of Maine Green Your School Fund is committed to taking care of the planet for kids today and generations to come. With this Double Your Impact match offer, they’re excited to support curious future environmental scientists in classrooms across the country! Qualifying projects that teach about sustainability, environmental consciousness, and the science of our environment posted after May 1 can receive matched donations from Tom’s of Maine.
Here’s how to qualify:
- Create a Standard project that explores environmental science concepts (the more hands-on, the better--see below for some great project inspiration!)
- Describe how your project will help you teach about environmental science (extra credit for shouting out Tom’s of Maine in your essay!)
- Keep your total project goal under $2000
- Select Environmental Science as your subject category
If your project meets the criteria above and was posted after May 1, you’ll see the match offer appear as soon as your project is live.
