Update 09/09/2020: As of 09/06/2020 funding for opportunity 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 projects that our teacher community created!
What kind of funding?
Starting September 4th, all qualifying projects will receive a 10X match. Once a month, all eligible projects will be fully funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
How to qualify:
- You teach in one of the following Northern California counties:
- Contra Costa
- San Francisco
- San Mateo
- Santa Clara
- You teach at a school where at least half of students are from low-income households. You can check out how DonorsChoose defines economic need in our Help Center.
- Keep your total project goal under $2,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.
How your project will be funded:
If your project meets the criteria above, once your project is live on our site, you’ll receive a 10X match offer and see a logo from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative on your project page. Once a month, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative will fully fund all eligible projects.
Please note, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative logo and 10x match offer will not appear during Friends and Family Pre-Funding.
