2X Match on San Diego County environmental science or STEM projects, thanks to San Diego Gas & Electric

Update 6/16/18: Funding for this match offer has been fully applied to eligible projects and donations will no longer be matched. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing projects created to promote environmental science in the classroom! We will update this page if additional funding becomes available.


Update 5/16/18: The 3X match to support select San Diego schools and districts has been fully tapped, but now projects from those schools will still receive a 2X match while funding lasts!


To support a healthy environment in San Diego County, San Diego Gas & Electric is matching donations to qualifying environmental science or STEM projects starting on April 4.  All schools in San Diego County are eligible for a 2X Match on environmental science or STEM projects that meet the criteria below, and select schools and districts in underserved and higher-pollution areas will be eligible for a 3X Match, thanks to support from San Diego Gas & Electric. The full list of schools and districts eligible for two-to-one matches is below, and all schools in San Diego county are eligible for one-to-one matched donations!  

Here’s how to qualify:

  • You teach in San Diego County, California.
  • Create a project that teaches your students about environmental science or STEM.
  • Keep your total project goal under $1,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org. Teachers can access up to $3,000 in funding from San Diego Gas & Electric, spread across multiple projects.
  • Select a subject under the Math & Science heading.

Create your project

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 or two-to-one as long as funding remains.  Projects can qualify for one match offer at a time.
