Support Newspaper In Education
You can help! One hundred percent of your cost will go directly to pay for newspapers in the classroom.
Generous sponsors allow NIE to serve local teachers and students. One hundred percent of your donation goes to the NIE program to pay for newspapers for classrooms. Our newspaper handles 50% of the NIE costs and requests NIE sponsors to pay the remaining 50%. Join The Leader-Union in providing educational stimulating materials to the classroom.
Some ways to support the NIE program:
You can support 1 student for only $3.46. This small amount provides newspapers for that one student for the entire school year!
You can “Adopt a Class” for $120.96 and help young people on the road to becoming informed, responsible adults. You can choose the teacher or school you would like to sponsor or you can sponsor a classroom on our waiting to be sponsored list.
