In addition to the important union work delegates do, a big part of the NEA Representative Assembly is raising money for the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education, the federal political action committee that NEA uses to fund pro-public education candidates. The funds that were raised in 2021 will be instrumental in keeping a pro-public education U.S. Senate and a House that has been good to public education the past three years. The money you help raise in 2022 will help us hopefully retain this advantage and possibly make it stronger.

The NEA and Education Minnesota would like all 2022 NEA RA delegates to start raising contributions from colleagues ASAP for the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education.

Fundraising goals

  1. Raise an average of $200 in contributions per delegate.
  2. Recruit five members to sign up for a $10 a month recurring contribution using your PACtivist page.

Notes:

  • Delegates will receive the $10 only after a contributor makes six months of continuous donations.
  • If a contributor stops donating before six months, delegates will NOT receive the $10.
  • For contributions that qualify for the $10, delegates need to go online to report a contributor’s info within five days of signing up the contributor so we can track compensation. This must be done whether you use the PACtivist page or payroll deduction cards. The form can be found here – Report Qualifying Contributors Info Page.
  • Those using payroll deduction must email a copy of the signed payroll deduction card to jim.meyer@edmn.org.
  • The following locals have payroll deduction for the NEA Fund: Alexandria, Burnsville, Centennial, Chaska, Dover-Eyota, Eden Prairie, Farmington, Hastings, Milaca, Mounds View, Park Rapids, Plainview-Elgin-Millville, Rochester, Roseville, Stewartville, Stillwater and Winona.
    • If you need payroll deduction cards, talk to your local president or contact Jim Meyer.

Other information:

  • Delegates who sign up five recurring contributors at $10 per month or more (PACtivist or payroll deduction) will have met their $200 RA fundraising goal.
  • If you are a delegate every year to the NEA RA and the contributor keeps the contributions coming, you will be credited $60 for a $5 per month contribution for the 2023 RA (12 months x $5 per month contribution).
