Questions about these options

  • Why choose other options? We want you to have the flexibility to choose what's right for you! If there are other options we didn't explore here, please reach out to our Donor Relationships team. We're happy to help!
  • How can I access my account credits? Once signed in, you'll find the total of your account credits in the top right-hand corner of every page next to your name, and also on the right-hand side of your “private info” tab. The account credits will be automatically recognized during the checkout process.
  • Do my account credits expire? Account credits can expire! Make sure that you use them before the listed expiration date (typically within 12 months of purchase). You can extend the expiration date for 30 days from the current date. You'll find a blue link labeled “Extend” under your account credits total on the right-hand corner of your “private info” page. You can also contact us for additional support.
  • I want to give a large amount. Can I talk to a person? Thank you so much for your interest in supporting teachers through DonorsChoose at scale. Please send a note to our Donor Relationships team, and we'll set up a time to talk about your goals.
  • Can I give in-kind? We're not currently set up to receive and distribute in-kind donations. Read more about in-kind donations on our Help Center.
  • Can I run my own match offer, or partner with DonorsChoose creatively? If you're interested in partnering with DonorsChoose, we'd love to hear more about the match you're interested in creating! Please send a short description to our Donor Relationships team and we'll get back to you shortly.
