About The Meemic Foundation
& Our Educational Grants
At Meemic, we’re dedicated to advancing the future of education. Since 1992, The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education has been funding programs and other partnership initiatives to support educational excellence. The Meemic Foundation, founded as a nonprofit organization through our insurance company, offers financial assistance to public, private, parochial and charter schools, and even colleges and universities.
Helping Educators Help Students for More Than 30 Years
For more than a quarter of a century, we've been pleased to support some truly inspiring educators. We’ve provided millions of dollars to members of the educational community to support innovative programs, award classroom grants for teachers and help schools around the country by providing grants for classrooms.
As The Meemic Foundation has grown, we’ve never lost sight of our vision of supporting educators and fund 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 in 1950 by a group of Michigan teachers that continues to serve the educational community.
- In the beginning, The Meemic Foundation only funded college scholarships.
- In 1999, The Meemic Foundation shifted its focus to provide grants for educators, enabling funding to reach more students.
- In April 2015, the free Meemic Foundation Club was created to provide club members exclusive access to key benefits like year-round grant opportunities, our teachers-to-teachers resource library for classroom tips and strategies, and special discounts on school and office supplies.
- Since the inception of the Foundation Club, millions of dollars have been dedicated to over 10,000 classrooms through grants from the Meemic Foundation.
Today & Tomorrow
The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education continues to support the efforts of educators from kindergarten through higher education. We continue to partner with local educational communities to provide additional funding opportunities and other needed aid to advance the quality of education and strengthen resources for future generations.
The inspiration for our mission comes from the educators themselves. Read their stories to experience the passion they have for igniting young minds.
