As an organization, we are committed to serving the needs of our members, teammates, and communities.

Staying true to our guiding principle of building a strong community, we have made a significant impact on our members’ lives through charitable giving and partnerships with non-profit organizations such as ALS Ride for Life, Association for Mental Health and Wellness, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Island Harvest, LGBT Network, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Nassau Community College Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Tunnel to Towers Foundation, and Wounded Warrior Project

In 2023, Teachers was the proud presenting sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides of Long Island, and flagship sponsor of Making Strides of Eastern Long Island and Making Strides of Tampa, raising more than $148,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. These efforts help fund life-saving research and provide essential programs and services to survivors, thrivers, and caregivers.
