#EveryKidCan: One-day-only 2X Match on April 16, 2019 for all live special needs projects on DonorsChoose.org

Update 4/17/2019: Funding for our one-day-only 2X Match has finished. Thank you to our champion teachers and the nearly 9,000 donors who supported them yesterday!


Our teachers know every single one of their students is capable of extraordinary things. That’s why today, for one-day-only, we’re matching donations to every live project requesting resources to help teachers support their students with special needs.

Here’s how donors can activate the 2X Match:

  • The 2X Match will be available from 8:00 AM EST on April 16 until 3:00 AM EST on April 17. When a donation of any amount is made to a live, approved special needs project within that time frame, DonorsChoose.org will automatically double the donation. That means a $20 will become a $40 donation, for example.
  • The Match will be applied automatically, so donors won’t need to enter a promo code.
  • Some projects qualify for other match offers; in that case, those projects will receive the match for which they currently qualify, instead of the one-day-only 2X Match.

Not seeing the 2X Match? There’s a promo code, too!

If you would like to donate to a special needs project, but you do not see the 2X Match on the project page, you can still have your donation matched by using the promo code EVERYKIDCAN during checkout and we will double your donation, while funds last! The promo code will match donations made by credit card only.
