What kind of match?
Starting February 11th, all qualifying projects will receive a 2X match. That means a $20 donation will become a $40 donation. Teachers who haven’t had a project fully funded on DonorsChoose before can qualify for a 3X match.
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 for the 2X match offer:
- Teach at a school in Wisconsin.
- Create a project requesting Books, Classroom Basics, or Food, Clothing & Hygiene materials. Check out how we define these resource categories on our site.
- Keep your total project goal under $1,000, including taxes, shipping, fees, and the suggested donation to support DonorsChoose.
How to qualify for the 3X match offer:
- Follow all of the criteria listed above.
- You haven’t had a project fully funded on DonorsChoose before.
