Horace Mann’s Support of Austin ISD

logo_horace_mannAccording to a news release May 29, the Horace Mann Companies donated more than $18,500 to complete 29 DonorsChoose.org project within Austin ISD.

Horace Mann is one of APIE and AISD’s returning sponsors for Salute and Celebrate, events held each spring to honor district volunteers, teachers, and administrators. We are incredibly grateful for their support year after year through financial sponsorship and social media promotion. In addition, we greatly appreciate this tremendous generosity to one of our founding partners, AISD.

As a result, 22 teachers at 13 Austin schools will receive items like yoga balls, science kits, books, an iPad, a listening center, an inflatable water park, a 3D printer, microscopes and other items…

“This donation allows all of these teachers to start the next school year with new supplies in the classroom to help their students excel, says local Horace Mann agent Jessica Gamez. “I’ve seen what a difference an iPad, science kits or a printer can make in a classroom, and to see all of these teachers have their projects completed is really something special.”

Horace Mann is the largest national multiline insurance company focusing on educators’ financial needs. For more info, visit horacemann.com

DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit website where public school teachers can describe educational project for their students and donors can choose project to support.
