The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity
created by WEA Member Benefits™
WHY SUPPORT PUBLIC SCHOOLS?
- We believe in education.
- We believe in public schools.
- We believe public school employees deserve to be financially secure.
The creation of WEA Member Benefits Foundation, Inc., is a natural extension of our beliefs. Its purpose is to help maintain a strong public school system that is open to all and to support those who do the important work of educating our children. The Foundation provides financial resources for their success, which in turn helps build strong communities.
Effective teachers are the key to student success and empowering them with the resources they need to be effective in the classroom is vital.
The Foundation is spearheading two statewide initiatives:
- Support and access to school-based mental health programs.
- Internet access for rural and low income students.
We also help support teachers and their communities through classroom grants, an annual student art contest, and more.
