AUBURN HILLS, Mich., MADISON, Wis. and WARRENVILLE, Ill., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Every year, teachers spend a portion of their hard earned cash on items needed for the classroom. To help alleviate this financial strain on educators, the Meemic Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Meemic Insurance Company to provide exclusive educational grants for teachers, has announced the launch of the Classroom Enrichment grants in partnership with Lakeshore®.
Lakeshore® is a leading developer and retailer of top-quality education materials. Since 1954, Lakeshore has offered innovative learning materials distinguished by their quality, educational merit, and safety. Through this partnership with Lakeshore®, the Classroom Enrichment Grant program will provide up to $100 that can be used for any and all classroom needs.
Meemic Foundation Club members are welcome to apply for a Classroom Enrichment grant through September 30. The grant is specifically designed to provide educators the ability to purchase up to $100 in items that will enhance the classroom learning experience.
"Meemic was founded by educators for educators and giving back to the educational community is the heart of what we do and believe in," said Pamela Harlin, spokesperson for the Meemic Foundation. "We're so grateful for our partnership with Lakeshore® to be able to provide hardworking teachers and staff alike the chance to save on necessary classroom items through our Foundation Club."
In 2015, the Meemic Foundation created the opportunity for any member of the educational community to join and have access to exclusive offerings and grants throughout the year through The Foundation Club. Through free registration to the Club, members benefit from offers like the Lakeshore® partnership. Grant recipients will receive special instructions on how to purchase their supplies through Lakeshore which will only be redeemable for online use. The grant must be used with Lakeshore by December 31, 2016.
"We care about our educators and our students," said Harlin. "We hope that this partnership 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."
