The NEA Foundation funds and supports educator-driven solutions to improve student performance. Through our work, we've learned that the best teaching ideas come from our greatest assets, educators. Teachers have great ideas to help their students learn more, but often lack the resources they need to bring these ideas to life. Last year, through our partnership with DonorsChoose.org, we matched public donations to support 1,000 NEA member requests for classroom materials, reaching 95,000 public school students. This year, with your help, we hope to reach even more.
We are no longer accepting projects for the "Double Your Impact" offer. Please check back soon for updates on our DonorsChoose.org partnership.
What is DonorsChoose.org?
DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that connects public school teachers in need of classroom materials and other learning needs to corporations, foundations, and everyday people who can help them. Only due to a powerful partnership between the NEA Foundation and DonorsChoose.org are we able to make this special offer available to NEA Members. Learn more.
