"I often think of Horace Mann agents as the ‘boots on the ground’ in support of DonorsChoose.org,” said Horace Mann agent Jerry Glunz. “We can bring the program into the schools, hold workshops showing teachers how to best utilize this wonderful charity, and help foster a greater awareness of this resource within the communities we serve. Our alliance with teachers, school districts and DonorsChoose.org will fund projects that will positively impact students in those schools for generations to come.”
DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit organization that connects donors with public school teachers who need classroom materials. Horace Mann agents have been spreading the word about the website among teachers since starting the partnership in 2011.
