Update 9/10/18: As of 9/7 funding for this match offer has been fully applied to eligible projects and donations are no longer being matched. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing projects created to help students get the basic materials needed to start the new school year off right! We will update this page if additional funding becomes available.
Starting September 5, 2018, your classroom basics project can come to life at half the cost thanks to matched donations from Neukom Family Foundation. Neukom Family foundation believes children everywhere should have the basics they need to start the school year off right. They’re excited to support projects requesting basic classroom materials with this 2X match offer!
Here’s how to qualify:
- Create a project requesting basic classroom materials. That means paper, pens, folders, binders, and poster board will be a great fit for this project!
- Trips, visitors, technology, furniture, tech, and other non-basic materials won’t qualify.
- 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.
Need inspiration? Here are some of our favorite classroom basics projects:
