The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education 

What is the NEA Fund?

It is our political muscle in Washington DC for helping elect pro-education legislators at the federal level.

Who can contribute?

Only current or retired members, NEA and affiliate executive and managerial staff and their families. The NEA Fund may not accept contributions from the general public.

How do I contribute?

Cash- no more than $100 dollars per individual per event

Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT)- money taken directly from your bank account

Credit Card- one time or continuous contributions

Pay roll deduction- taken from each of your paychecks (likely the same time dues are taken)

Soft money vs. Hard Money?

Soft money- any money collected that is sent in after 30 days of collecting it.

Money can be used for activities NOT directly related to a specific candidate.

Hard money– money collected that is sent into NEA Fund within 30 days of collecting it.

This money is contributed directly to a candidate or political party.
