Unfortunately, there are students in our schools who don't have the basics. Some are in need of clothing, school supplies, or other things we take for granted. No child should do without. The purpose of the Children’s Fund, a registered 501(c)(3) foundation, is to make sure all Washington state children thrive in school, regardless of their family income. To that end, the fund reimburses WEA members in public education who purchase shoes, coats, clothing, and other necessities for needy students throughout our state. Members are allowed to purchase up to $75 for a student who is in need of any of the above supplies. All requests are confidential.

Prior approval is required for reimbursement. Approved requests will be reimbursed provided receipts are submitted within 30 days of your approval and adhere to the guidelines. The WEA Children’s Fund accepts requests from September 1st to June 15th or until funding is exhausted.
