Update 8/26/19: As of 8/25/19, funding for this Match Offer has been fully applied to eligible projects, and donations are no longer being matched. We will update this page if additional funding becomes available. We are thrilled to see all of the amazing Montessori and project-based learning projects that our teacher community created!
Update 8/19/19: Funding for this Match is running low. We anticipate all funding will be applied to eligible projects within the next 2 weeks. If you have a project idea in the works, submit as soon as possible for the best chance to receive matched donations!
What kind of match?
Starting July 31, 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:
- Post a project on DonorsChoose.org that implements a Montessori or project-based learning approach in your classroom. We are especially excited by projects that are hands-on and allow students to learn through doing! Be sure to describe your Montessori or project-based approach in the “My Project” portion of your project essay.
- Keep your total project goal under $1,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.org.
What won’t qualify:
- Projects requesting computers or tablets for this Match Offer will not be eligible for this Match Offer.
