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!

Craig Newmark Philanthropies is matching donations on all projects, while funds last!

Update 5/14/2019: Funding for this sitewide Match has finished. Thank you to our wonderful teacher and donor community! Together, we fully funded over 5,000 classroom projects!


Starting Monday, May 13, all live, approved projects will receive a 2X Match, while funds last. That means a $20 donation will become a $40 one. We anticipate this Match to last 1-3 days.

How to activate the Match Offer:

  • All live, approved projects on DonorsChoose.org will be eligible for this Match Offer. If you already have a live, approved project on DonorsChoose.org, you’re all set!
  • The 2X Match will be applied automatically, so donors don’t need to enter a promo code.
  • Credit card, account credit, and gift card donations to a live, approved classroom project will be eligible for this 2X Match. Check donations and donor advised funds will not receive the Match.
  • Some projects qualify for other Match Offers; in that case, those projects will receive the match for which they currently qualify, instead of the sitewide Match. (Exception: If a project currently qualifies for a 50% boost, that project will instead receive this sitewide 2X Match, while funds last. Once the sitewide Match is over, the project will again qualify for the boost.)
