How You Can Help

What you can do

Your advocacy to increase the federal investment in education can make a real difference!

Call or email your Members of Congress and ask them to vote for funding bills that increase the federal investment in education. Ask to meet with them when they are in your home town.

You can call the Congressional switchboard at 202-224-3121 or locate your Members of Congress at the links below:

Use our advocacy fact sheets — 5¢ Makes Sense, Myth v Fact, Federal Investment in Education — and the funding charts on our website when you write a letter to the editor of your local paper or blog about the need to increase the federal education investment.
Follow CEF (@edfunding) on both Twitter and Instagram — see what our many member organizations are doing and keep current with education funding issues.
