San Diego Gas & Electric matching donations on STEM projects, starting March 14, 2019

What kind of match?

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

Certain schools and districts are eligible for a 3X Match. Check the list at the bottom of this article to see if your school and/or district are eligible for the 3X Match. To make it easy, click Control+F or Command+F and type in your school and/or district.

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.

How to qualify:

  • You teach in a San Diego classroom.
  • Keep your total project goal under $1,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org.
  • Create a project requesting STEM resources to help your students get hands-on science skills.
    • Please note: Flexible seating projects will not be eligible for this match.
