Why support public schools?

At WEA Member Benefits:

  • 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.
