- More than half of the students at your school are from low-income households

- Keep your total project goal under $1000 including taxes, fees, and the suggested donation to DonorsChoose.org (that's about $750 in materials)

Once your project is live on the site, the offer should appear automatically as long as it meets the criteria above.
