75,000 Meemic Foundation Club members.
Who knew we’d grow so quickly in just a few short years? In fact, since 2015, we’ve given out more than 14,000 grants valued in the millions of dollars, exclusively to our Foundation Club members.
If you’re not a Club member, what are you waiting for? Membership is free and open to all school employees, school employee retirees, and more.
As a Club member, first and foremost, you get exclusive access to all of our amazing grant opportunities. And our grant applications are designed understanding the unique needs of our busy educators – there are no
questions! That’s right! We have removed all questions from our grant applications. With just a couple clicks, you can throw your name in the hat for our monthly PopIn2Win or quarterly grant opportunities. Win items like flexible seating, 3-D printer, a classroom rug or other great stuff for the classroom.
And did you know that you can nominate a fellow educator or school for a grant? If your classroom can’t benefit from one of our amazing grant awards, maybe a local school or an educator you know can! As a Club member, you have the power to nominate them instead. What a great way to recognize a school or educator in need!
Through our Club, you can network with fellow teachers on classroom strategies through our Teacher-to-Teacher Resource Library. With on-demand webinars on topics featuring practical classroom tips (as an example, “Creating Powerful Partnerships: 10 Survival Tips” by 2018 Illinois Teacher of the Year Lindsey Jensen) to ideas for self-care (another example, “Healthy Eating for Busy People” by registered dietician Shawna Broida), the Resource Library has something for everyone. And if you have a tip or strategy to share with fellow Club members, we want to hear from you.
Club members who are currently employed within the educational community are also eligible to participate in the Sprint Works Member program. For details on this fantastic benefit, eligible Club members are encouraged to log into their Foundation Club account and access their Discounts and Benefits page to view the Sprint Works program’s current promotions and savings.
This joins other discounts from our other national business partners on school and office supplies.

The Meemic Foundation Club. This is for you! And we couldn’t do it without you. We can’t wait to share even more exciting grant opportunities in 2020.
As always, thank you for all that you do for education.
