About The Meemic Foundation
& Our Educational Grants
Since 1992, The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education has been supporting education excellence through funding programs and other partnership initiatives. Created by Meemic Insurance Company and founded as a nonprofit organization, The Meemic Foundation is dedicated to advancing the future of education by offering financial assistance to public, private, parochial and charter schools, and colleges and universities.
Helping Educators Help Students for Over 20 Years
Over the course of two decades, we've been pleased to support some truly inspiring educators. Nearly $2,000,000 has been provided to members of the educational community to support innovative programs, events and projects that have significantly impacted the classroom experience.
As The Meemic Foundation has grown, we’ve never lost sight of our vision of supporting educators and funding the future of education. Here are a few significant milestones along our journey:
- In March 1992, The Meemic Foundation was established as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with resources provided by Meemic Insurance Company, a business founded by seven Michigan teachers in 1950 that continues to serve the educational community.
- In the beginning, The Meemic Foundation funded college scholarships.
- In 1999, The Meemic Foundation shifted its focus to provide grants for educators, thus enabling funding to reach more students. To date, our teacher grants have totaled almost $2 million.
- In 2015, Meemic Insurance Company celebrated its 65th anniversary by providing an additional $100,000 to support Back-to-School Grants.
- In 2016, The Meemic Foundation is set to give $500,000 in grants, affecting more than 3,000 educators.
Today & Tomorrow
The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education continues to support the efforts of educators from preschool through higher education. We will always seek to partner with local educational communities to provide additional grant funding opportunities and other needed resources to advance the quality of education.
The inspiration for our mission comes from the educators themselves. Read their stories to experience the passion they have for igniting young minds.
