Update 4/13/18: Funding for this match offer has been fully applied to eligible projects and is donations will no longer be matched. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing projects created in Colorado classrooms! We will update this page if additional funding becomes available.
The Ned Harding and Nathalie Smith Fund believes all teachers deserve to be provided with the tools they need to educate the children of Colorado. Starting February 5, Colorado projects from schools where more than half of students are from low-income households can come to life at half the cost thanks to matched donations from The Ned Harding and Nathalie Smith Fund.
Here’s how to qualify:
- You teach in Colorado.
- More than half of your students are from low-income households. See how we calculate your school’s economic need.
- Create a project for anything your students need.
- Keep your total project goal under $1,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org.
If your project meets the criteria above, you should see the match offer applied to your project as soon as it’s approved and live on the site (however, it won’t appear during Friends and Family Pre-funding). New donations will be matched one-to-one as long as funding remains.
