A pilot program to match individual donations for classroom projects designed to build financial literacy has been launched by The Charles Schwab Corp., the company said in a recent press release.

Schwab's initial $100,000 funding will provide dollar-for-dollar matching donations to DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit founded in 2000 by a Bronx history teacher, for projects that incorporate financial education. Such projects at any public or charter school across the country with a total cost of up to $1,500 are eligible for the matching donation.

Your project must focus on financial literacy. See this page on donorschoose for example projects and the link at the top of that page to start your project. Remember to align your project with Crowdfunding in MMSD Guidelines.
