Teachers who have never registered for an account on DonorsChoose can earn $20 in DonorsChoose account credits by creating an account between Wednesday 12AM ET September 16th until Thursday 8AM ET September 17th. Account credits will be added directly to your account on September 17th.
How do I register for DonorsChoose?
Head to Teacher Registration to create your account. All you’ll need is:
- A personal email address
- The name and address of the school that you teach at
- A school or district email address (if you do not have an official email, please reach out to our team.)
Who can use DonorsChoose?
Full-time educators in public or charter schools in the United States of America are eligible to use DonorsChoose. You can check out the full teacher eligibility criteria in our Help Center.
What are account credits?
DonorsChoose account credits are like DonorsChoose dollars that you can use to support projects on our site. You can use your $20 in account credits to donate to any project, including your own!
You’ll see your account credits in the top right corner of your account, next to your name. If you are eligible for the $20 new teacher incentive, you’ll see $20 in account credits in your account by September 18th. Check out our help center for more information on using your account credits.

Why do I need a school or district email address?
To verify that your account belongs to an eligible public school teacher, we ask you to register with your school email address: we won’t use this email address as our primary way to contact you, but will ask you to confirm that you can receive and click a link within your school email inbox. Check out all the details in our Help Center.
