Local and State Legislative/Political Action Fund
MNEA collects voluntary contributions from members to be used in supporting or opposing local and state policy issues, local bond/levy elections, school board election activity and candidates identified through member screening committees as friends of public education. $1 per month is a recommended minimum amount with ½ set aside to be used by your local association. Many members choose to give more; however, state law requires MNEA to report to the Ethics Commission the name and mailing address of any individual whose contributions aggregated in excess of $100. You may adjust this voluntary contribution up or down by writing a different amount in the blank space provided on the form in Step 2.


Unite-Inspire-Lead Ballot Issue Fund
The time is now to let your voice be heard on ballot issues that impact public educators. For twelve years all members contributed approximately $13 automatically but in 2018 the state legislature passed HB 1413 to shut down your voice by requiring you to sign this form annually authorizing your contribution. Remember that in 2018 your fund passed CLEAN Missouri by a 62% margin statewide which included ethics reform, campaign finance reform and other issues to clean up government in Jefferson City. We have also used our ballot fund to pass minimum wage increases for support staff and to fight extreme tax reforms that jeopardize school funding. The Unite-Inspire-Lead Ballot Issue Fund has defeated anti public education ballot issues for the past decade. You may adjust this voluntary contribution up or down by writing a different amount in the blank space provided on the form in Step 2.

Share your story

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at coronavirus@mnea.org, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
