Answers and tools

  • Can we do a match offer? Absolutely! Because DonorsChoose serves such a large audience of teachers, companies and foundations nationwide, we can launch match offers with budgets of $25,000+. If you’re interested in partnering with DonorsChoose, we’d love to hear more about the match you’re interested in creating! Please visit our Partnership Center to learn more and contact us.
  • How can I make my donation? When supporting a DonorsChoose project, you can place your donations via credit card, check, Donor Advised Fund, PayPal, stock transfer, and digital currencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, or Litecoin. Learn more about making donations at our Help Center.
  • Can I give in-kind? We're not currently set up to receive and distribute in-kind donations. Read more about in-kind donations and some organizations that can help at our Help Center.
  • How can I spread the word about DonorsChoose? We have resources for you to share what you love about DonorsChoose! Check out the Design Playground to build custom, on-brand social media graphics. You can also visit our media page for our logo, brand guidelines, and access to classroom photos. Follow us on Twitter Facebook, and Instagram for even more inspiration!
  • Can we talk to one of your celebrities? Celebrity advocates of DonorsChoose, like Stephen Colbert and Yvette Nicole Brown, support teachers and students on DonorsChoose through their own initiatives. While we would be excited to collaborate with any celebrities or influencers already working with your brand, we don't have the bandwidth connect you to celebrities within our network.
  • Can I fundraise for your organization with my customer? We absolutely welcome point-of-sale and cause marketing initiatives, as long as your business is not selling items that are not appropriate for children (tobacco, firearms, alcohol, gambling, or violent materials). We ask that you follow the Better Business Bureau guidelines for cause marketing and that you use our pre-approved assets for any promotional materials. Questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us.
