We Invest In You

Since educators are taking care of our children's future, we believe in taking care of our educators' future.  That's why we've developed a variety of programs and services that help educators achieve inside and outside of the classroom.

Crystal Apple Award

Horace Mann representatives partner with local school administrators each year to sponsor the Crystal Apple Award program for recognizing teaching excellence. Contact your local Horace Mann insurance agent to see how you can recognize excellence in your school.


We’re a national sponsor of DonorsChoose, a not-for-profit organization that connects donors with teachers who are looking for help funding classroom supplies, equipment and technology.  As part of our sponsorship, many Horace Mann agents have become experts of DonorsChoose and donate to individual projects in the schools they serve.  Contact your local Horace Mann insurance agent today to learn more.

Foundation Awards

Horace Mann has partnered with the National Education Association Foundation to offer the NEA Member Benefits Award for Teaching Excellence.  Each year, five finalists are honored at the NEA Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence in Education and receive a $10,000 cash prize.  The recipient of the award receives an additional $25,000 cash prize.

Local Sponsorships

Agents invest in you and your classroom throughout the year by sponsoring educator luncheons, State Teachers' Retirement System workshops, student attendance and achievement programs, and more!  Contact your local Horace Mann insurance agent to see what sponsorships are available in your area.
