There are many opportunities for members, parents, students, and community allies to help us fight for strong public education for all.

The National Education Association is leading the charge to advance public education in the United States, and to create a public education system where every student, no matter where they live, can succeed.

If you are committed to these efforts, we need your support on the national, state, and local levels. Here’s what you can do:

Donate to the NEA Fund

The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education is our PAC committed to electing public school champions up and down the ballot regardless of political party. It has never been more important to come together to fight for real leaders at the federal and state level.

NEA Members can donate to the PAC here. Your support is urgently and critically needed in the lead-up to the 2020 Elections. We are working hard to fire Betsy DeVos and mobilize support for candidates up and down the ballot.

Become a Community Ally Member

Community Ally membership is a way for parents, activists, and other concerned citizens not working in the education field to support NEA’s work and demonstrate their commitment to the fight for public schools. 

For just $25 a year, you can become a part of our work to improve the quality of our public schools, keep caring educators in our classrooms, increase student achievement, and make sure our schools are safer, better places to learn.

Support the NEA Foundation

The NEA Foundation is a non-profit charity that offers funding and other resources to public school educators, their schools, and districts to solve complex teaching and learning challenges. It has received Charity Navigator’s highest, 4-star rating on financial health, accountability, and transparency for the past decade, a record that puts it in the top two percent of all rated charities.

The Foundation relies on the generosity of educators and community allies to support their amazing work. Make a gift to support programs that improve public education today.
