Update 1/23/20: Funding for this Match Offer has been fully applied to eligible projects, and donations are no longer being matched. We will update this page if additional funding becomes available. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing projects that our teacher community created!
As part of their education device trade-in program, Verizon is matching donations to tech projects at schools where more than three-quarters of students are from low-income households starting on August 24, 2018. Verizon is helping to give millions of kids a brighter future by putting technology, access, and innovative learning programs in the hands of students to put them on the path to success. Every donation made to eligible projects will receive a 50% boost. For example, the boost will turn $20 into $30, or $50 into $75! Find out more about our match offers.
Here’s how to qualify:
- More than three-quarters of your students are from low-income households, which means that 76% or more of your students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. See more about how we measure schools’ economic need.
- Create a project requesting computers, laptops, tablets, or other instructional technology from one of our vendors for your students.
- Keep your total project goal under $1,200, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org. Each teacher can access up to $3,000 in funding from this match offer, across as many projects as you like.
- Select a subject under Math & Science.
- Standard and Student-Led Projects are eligible for this match. Special Request, Class Trip, and Class Visitor Projects are ineligible.
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 half-to-one as long as funding remains.
