What kind of match?
Starting May 17, 2019, 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.
How to qualify:
- You have never before had a project fully funded on DonorsChoose.org.
- Create a project requesting books and/or basic classroom materials. That means paper, pens, folders, binders, and poster board will be a great fit for this project!
- Keep your total project goal under $600, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org.
What won’t qualify:
- Technology won’t qualify for this match; if you have any technology items in your project alongside basic supplies (laptops, tablets, headphones, etc.), you won’t receive the match.
- Trips, visitors, furniture, and other non-basic materials also won’t qualify for this match.
