Celebrating the most innovative teachers on February 28!

Fast Company just named DonorsChoose.org one of 2019’s Most Innovative Companies — so we’re celebrating the world’s most innovative teachers!

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation matching donations on Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas projects, starting November 1, 2018

Update 1/7/2019: Funding for this match is running low. We anticipate all funding will be applied to eligible projects within the next 2 weeks. If you have a project idea in the works, submit as soon as possible for the best chance to receive matched donations!


What kind of match?

All qualifying projects will receive a 2X Match. That means a $20 donation will become a $40 donation.

If your project meets the criteria below, new donations on your project will be matched as long as funding remains. You will see the match offer applied to your project as soon as it is approved and live on the site. Please note, the match offer will not appear during Friends and Family Pre-Funding.
