Thank America's Teachers®
As an organization that believes in smart, Farmers is proud of its signature corporate social responsibility program: Thank America's Teachers.
Across the country, teachers give their time, talent and knowledge to help ensure that children become smarter and better prepared for the future; Thank America's Teachers makes it easy and powerful to offer heartfelt gratitude to educators who have made an impact on our lives.
Through Thank America's Teachers, which begins its fifth year in 2017, Farmers will once again give away more than $1 million in educational grants to deserving teachers across the country.
Thank America's Teachers gives you the power to help transform classrooms, schools and even entire communities by helping Farmers determine how and where funds are spent. Simply visit www.ThankAmericasTeachers.com to acknowledge an exceptional teacher and say thanks.
These teachers then have the opportunity to apply for one of 180 grants worth $2,500, and an additional five teachers will win the Dream Big Teacher Challenge, consisting of five $100,000 grants.

Farmers also supports at-risk youth through grants and sponsorship for the Boys & Girls Clubs, First Tee, Monarch School, United Way, YMCA and many other education and after school programs around the country.
Education Matching Grants
Finally, reflective of its mission-oriented culture, Farmers matches employee contributions to a qualifying College, University or K-12 school up to $500.
