Fund for Children and Public Education

Fight for the Future of Public Education

The OEA Fund for Children and Public Education is our greatest tool for advocating for our students and schools at the statewide level.  Members across the state donate small amounts of money to the OEA Fund.  Our OEA-endorsed legislators are fighting for us while we fight for what our students deserve at home.  Pro-public education elected officials have pending legislation on school funding, reducing testing, and the repeal the school takeover law.  This directly affects us in East Cleveland.

To show solidarity in ECEA during this Crisis time, the ECEA Officers, the ECEA Executive Board and the ECEA Crisis Committee would like every member to contribute to the FCPE through the OEA online portal.  We are asking $2 a pay, which is a total of $52.00.  Many members give more than that through payroll deduction and we would encourage you to keep your amount the same either through payroll deduction or the OEA donation link.  If you want to continue with payroll deduction you will need to complete your form from your building reps.  This form is due by October 14th.  Otherwise, please use the OEA donation secure link.

EVERY member who contributes AT LEAST $52.00 for this year will receive a Solidarity T-shirt to wear on Friday’s. If you donate online you will need to show us your receipt in order to receive your shirt. Below is the design for the new shirt.

Donate online:  www.ohea.org/donate

The FCPE drive will run from October 2nd through October 13th.

We are expecting a quick turn around and we will let everyone know when the shirts are available for pick up.

We are in this together – Proudly ONE UNION!!!
