NEA Foundation Announces Funding Opportunity for NEA Members
The NEA Foundation announced a new partnership to help educators, who are faced with shrinking classroom budgets, enlist public support to acquire the teaching tools they believe will engage and inspire their students.
Beginning on Sept. 22, the NEA Foundation will match donations to NEA members received on DonorsChoose.org, the online charity where teachers post classroom project requests and citizen philanthropists browse and support projects that appeal to them. To date the site has raised over $88,016,035 helping over 5,251,074 students.
NEA members can post requests for up to $500 for classroom supplies on the DonorsChoose.org website, where supporters of public education can browse requests and make donations. When a donation is received, the NEA Foundation will match it, up to $250 per request.
