Starting August 5th: Post Your First Project... or Help a Colleague Down the Hall!


DonorsChoose.org is the nonprofit classroom funding site for public school teachers. Educators from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and donors can give any amount to the project that inspires them. Since our founding by a history teacher in 2000, over 430,000 teachers have used the site to bring a total of over $700 million in resources to their students. (Learn more about DonorsChoose.org.)

One Very Special Week

Now, during one very special week this back-to-school season, we're giving teachers new to DonorsChoose.org an extra boost — and empowering all DonorsChoose.org educators to earn classroom funding while welcoming their colleagues.Here's how it works:From August 5th – August 10th, 2018, all teachers who submit their first DonorsChoose.org project will receive a guaranteed $50 donation to this first project, plus a promo code that matches all donations during that project’s first week.(To create your first project, start here.) If you're thinking about posting your first project or encouraging a colleague to post one, this is the perfect opportunity. Bring on back-to-school!

Create a Project

During this special week, all DonorsChoose.org teachers who have previously posted a classroom project can earn $25 in DonorsChoose.org credits each time they refer a teacher to post a their first DonorsChoose.org project. So, if you're a teacher who has posted at least one project in the past, use our brand new referral page to welcome a new teacher and earn your credits!
