Other Ways To Give

Together we build the future.

Whether you choose to support educator innovation in the classroom, professional development, STEM education, global learning, or to celebrate educator excellence, your gift will make a difference for educators and students across the country.

Your donation is tax-deductible

Your donation is tax-deductible and will provide essential funding to support students and educators in public schools across the country. You can choose to make a one-time donation or give on a monthly basis. You will receive an electronic receipt via e-mail for your contribution after the transaction is completed. We are proud that we have earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, and we are pleased to participate in the Guidestar Exchange program.

Give By IRA Charitable Distribution

Support the NEA Foundation Directly through Your IRA

If you are over age 70 ½, consider supporting the NEA Foundation directly through your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Giving a donation to a qualified charity, such as the NEA Foundation, directly from your IRA can yield tax savings for you and provide much-needed support to the NEA Foundation.
Please consult with your advisors regarding the tax benefits of such gifts and your plan administrator for the required forms.

Give By Stock

Gifts of Appreciated Publicly Traded Securities Can Offer Attractive Tax Benefits

Please contact Kate Gibney, Senior Vice President of Development, for instructions on making an electronic transfer of stock. Because donor names are not identified in such gift transactions, please let us know your name, your broker’s name and contact information, and the number of shares you intend to transfer so we may correctly identify and acknowledge your gift once it has been received. Kate can be reached at kgibney@nea.org.

For more information on the benefits of making a gift of stock or appreciated securities we recommend speaking with your financial advisor.
