Supporting Education is Our Way of Life
We strongly believe that solid and accessible educational programs are pillars of changing and improving communities in all our backyards. We proudly support at-risk youth through sponsorships of the United Way, Boys & Girls Clubs, First Tee, Monarch School, and many other education and after school programs around the country.
Our goal is to provide better opportunities for the next generation by increasing their chance to move on to college and successful careers.
Thank America’s Teachers
Farmers Insurance is going on a coast-to-coast tour to say thank you to America’s teachers.
In 2016, for a third year, Farmers will give away more than $1 million to educators, and we are inviting America to help us determine how to spend it. Throughout the year, we will award $2,500 grants to 180 teachers across the nation and an additional six Dream Big Teacher Challenge grants of $100,000 each to help fund the bold and innovative educational visions of deserving teachers. Please visit the Thank America’s Teachers page to learn more about the program, thank a teacher and vote for a proposal.
