What kind of match?
Starting August 16, 2020 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 teach in a 6th-8th grade classroom.
- Create a sports-related project, requesting equipment, uniforms, training gear, food or hygiene-related items for your middle schoolers. These materials can be for gym class, after-school sports activities/teams, or to help your students stay active at home.
- Keep your total project goal under $3,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.
- Select Gym & Fitness or Team Sports as your project’s subject area.
What won’t qualify:
- Professional Development projects are not eligible for this match.
- Class Trip and Class Visitor projects are not eligible for this match.
- Projects requesting technology, including computers and tablets are not eligible for this match.
