Fund for Children and Public Education
The National Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education collects voluntary contributions from Association members and uses these contributions for political purposes, including, but not limited to, making contributions to and expenditures on behalf of friends of public education who are candidates for federal office. Only U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents may contribute to the NEA Fund. Contributions to The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education are voluntary; making a contribution is neither a condition of employment nor membership in the Association, and members have the right to refuse to contribute without suffering any reprisal. Although The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education requests an annual contribution of $15, this is only a suggestion. A member ma y contribute more or less than the suggested amount, or may contribute nothing at all, without it affecting his or her membership status, rights, or benefits in NEA or any of its affiliates. Contributions or gifts to The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer for each individual whose contributions aggregate in excess of $200 in a calendar year. Federal law prohibits The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education from receiving donations from persons other than members of NEA and its affiliates, and their immediate families. All donations from persons other than members of NEA and its affiliates, and their immediate families, will be returned forthwith. In accordance with The SCEA Bylaws, contributions to The SCEA Political Action Fund have been assessed with The SCEA dues. Any member wishing not to contribute must contact The SCEA in writing for a $10.00 refund. IRS Language: Dues payments are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Dues payments (or a portion) may be deductible as a miscellaneous itemized deduction. However, $27.21 of your dues is not deductible ($10.00 for PAC and $17.21 for lobbying.)

Pay Dues by Credit or Debit Card
Easy Pay Plan-Draft from Credit or Debit Card
Sign me up on The SCEA Easy Pay Plan. I request and authorize The SCEA to make equal deduction(s) from my checking account. I have read the EFT draft schedule that is provided on The SCEA's website at www.thescea.org. Such request and authorization with no refund shall continue each year until I notify the SCEA on the appropriate form (contact The SCEA office for form) to discontinue my membership. This authorization shall permit and accept any changes in the amount of dues adopted by the governing body prior to first withdrawal for which The SCEA will send notice to the address it has on file for me. I hereby authorize The SCEA to initiate debit entries to my checking account indicated below and the bank name below, hereinafter-called BANK, to debit the same to such account. I will not hold my BANK liable for any erroneous debits made by THE SCEA. This authorization is to remain in full force and effect until BANK has received notification from me of its termination in such time and in such manner as to afford BANK a reasonable opportunity to act on it. A customer has the right to stop payment of a debit entry by notification on to BANK prior to charging account. After account has been charged, a customer has the right to have amount of the erroneous debit immediately credited to their account by BANK up to fifteen (15) days following issuance of statement of account or forty-five (45) days after the charge, whichever comes first.
