Missouri NEA members want a way to support educators and students who need a little help financially. That's why Missouri NEA offers two charitable funds. Both of the funds allow tax-deductible contributions, and you have the option to give just once or set up a recurring contribution.
You can submit requests for assistance at any time during the year to the HOPE Fund. Applications are reviewed by the MNEA president. The CHEER Fund accepts applications until Feb. 1 each year. The MNEA-Retired president reviews and issues funds during the spring.
