Farmers® and America's Teachers believe in the power of smart
Thank you for visiting the Thank America’s Teachers® website. For the past several years, Farmers® has helped encourage people across America to recognize educators for their dedication to making our nation’s young people smarter, more confident and better prepared for the future. The first step in this endeavor was making it easy to say “thank you” to teachers through this dedicated site. We also take pride in having impacted hundreds of classrooms in America by awarding more than $4 million in grants to teachers.
While our Thank America’s Teachers® educational grant program came to an end in December 2018, Farmers® continues to believe teachers deserve our thanks and will continue to support teachers, students and learning. We encourage communities throughout the country to show their appreciation to educators in new and innovative ways.
This site will continue to facilitate the thanking of America’s teachers and we hope you’ll peruse the site to learn more about the exciting ways many of the grant winners are impacting their communities, and our nation, through education.
When we invest in our youth, we improve access to education and job readiness. Farmers strongly believes solid and accessible educational programs are pillars of changing and improving communities throughout the United States. Our goal is to provide better opportunities for the next generation by increasing their chance to move on to college and successful careers.
Farmers Insurance's® employees and agents actively invest time and financial support to empower youth and those who prepare them for the future.
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.
