ILT TEACHER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM - (TAP)
For every teacher and support staff that becomes a member $2 goes to our Teacher and Support Staff Assistance Program, helping those in need.
How Does it Work?
Our members are Public School Teachers, and Support Staff as well as Private, Charter, and Home School Teachers. Our partners are the businesses that make up our communities.
Businesses offer discounts or donations for our members, the community, in turn, supports these businesses by patronizing from them and spreading the good word. The better the offer, the more attention from our members, and community support. This creates a symbiotic relationship between our community, and it’s businesses, our teachers and support staff.
HOW IS IT FUNDED?
- $2 from each paid Teacher (33% of $6)
- $2 from each paid Support Staff (20% of $10)
- $10 from each paid Business Partner (percentage varies)
How are the teachers chosen?
There is an application process. Twice a year (starting May 1st, 2020 and November 1st, 2020) a single recipient or multiple recipients may be chosen by an independent review committee made up of seven advisors. These advisors are former students made up of doctors, nurses, businessmen or women, teachers, first responders, financial planners, and lawyers.
How do the Teachers get these funds?
The applicants that are chosen by our independent review committee may or may not be members of I Love Teachers. Those that apply are not required to be members. Recipients will be notified by one or more of the following from the information provided in the application – mail, email, or phone and posted publicly on our site 30 days after the recipient is chosen. These funds will be delivered by check to the awarded applicant by I Love Teachers.
Further detail will be provided in the application.
The ILT Scholarship Program
I Love Teachers is proud to invest in the educators of the future.
The I Love Teachers Scholarship Foundation’s purpose is to encourage relationships between businesses, schools, the community, educators, and the students to improve public school education to further appreciation in public schools.
How Do We Do This
We introduce teachers to our business partners that want to express their admiration and appreciation by way of donated or discounted everyday services or products. Proceeds from our premier membership paid by both Teachers and Support Staff as well as our Business Partners fund our scholarship foundation.
Scholarships will be granted to students whose personal goals, college major and declared career path show future success in a field related to education. The foundation expects to award scholarship funds totaling $10,000 to $20,000 in 2020. That amount may be given as a single award to one student or may be distributed as multiple awards to several students at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee.
Who May Apply
Graduating High School students. Candidates must be attending college in 2020-2021 as a full-time student, (four-year or community college) pursuing an undergraduate degree related to a career in education. Applicant must be a legal resident of the United States, living in the United States.
Funds will be rewarded to the winners upon presentation of proof of payment for tuition, books, dormitory rent or other eligible expenses deemed appropriate by the foundation board.
