The Friends of Excellence campaign helps pay for many of the wonderful programs which NYSEC supports. Some of the programs included in this fund are the Educator of Excellence Award, Programs of Excellence Award, and the Mini-Grants.

In order for these programs to continue to function, Friends of Excellence asks for your assistance through a monetary donation. If you already were planning to give to Friends of Excellence, thank you. Your contribution will be added to the fund and is greatly appreciated.

If you have not already decided to give to the fund, please consider doing so. This will give you a chance to give back and assist others in your field. NYSEC offers many opportunities for English teachers. At some point in time you may have been recognized by NYSEC, assisted with a conference session, found an article you loved in The English Record, or simply discovered a connection with another teacher of English at the annual conference. All of these services are provided to help us grow in our profession. The Friends of Excellence campaign also stimulates growth and encourages new ideas.

Friends of Excellence are those members and businesses who contribute. Twenty-five dollars is the suggested amount, but it by no means is the limit or minimum donation. Please consider adding your support to this campaign.

You can make your check payable to NYSEC and can send it with the Friends of Excellence form. NYSEC will acknowledge your gift though our Annual Conference Program. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Become a Friend of Excellence!
