In April of 2015, the Meemic Foundation created a new opportunity for any education employee to join and have access to exclusive offerings and grants throughout the year. The creation? The Foundation Club. Through free registration to the Club, members benefit from offers like the Quill.com partnership. Members can enjoy the savings on classroom supplies by registering with Quill.com, providing them direct access to Quill.com discounts.
"We care about our educators," said Harlin. "We hope that this grant will bring much needed relief to our members as they're able to both inspire the next generation of students and save money while doing it."
