Every month, dozens of companies and foundations show their support for public school teachers and students by matching donations to DonorsChoose requests — and it’s one of the easiest ways to secure funding for your classroom!
When a project receives a doubled donation, its chance of success jumps from 85% to 92%.
As you gear up for the new school year and think about what resources you’d like your classroom filled with, explore some of the match offers available this August. For more match offers & funding opportunities, check out this Help Center article.
Mark your calendars — August 9! A Back-to-School Boost ON ALL PROJECTS!
Starting at 7AM ET on Thursday, August 9, donations to every live, approved project will qualify for a 50% boost, thanks to Bill Gates. That means a $20 donation will become a $30 donation, a $100 donation will become a $150 donation, and so on. All you have to do to take part is have a project live before August 9th — don’t miss out! Create your project or learn more about this Back-to-School Boost offer.
