At Horace Mann, we take our commitment to supporting education very seriously. That’s why we seek partnerships with organizations that are just as dedicated to serving the business needs of your school as we are, and we sponsor programs that have a direct, positive impact on the educators and their students.
American Association of School Administrators
We are pleased to be a Large Strategic Partner of the AASA, The School Superintendents Association. AASA is the professional organization for more than 13,000 educational leaders in 49 of the United States and throughout the world.
Horace Mann assists AASA in its mission to support and develop effective school system leaders. We also support a number of AASA initiatives to facilitate the professional development of its members, including the National Conference on Education, Superintendent Certification Program and Digital Consortium Conference.
For more information, contact your local Horace Mann representative or visit AASA’s website.
Association of School Business Officials
We’re proud to be one of 10 strategic partners of the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International, an organization of more than 5,000 school business management professionals.
We were chosen by ASBO as a strategic partner because of our commitment to building and maintaining relationships with their members and supporting the needs of key decision-makers in school districts across the nation.
As part of our commitment, we sponsor the Certified Administrator of School Finance and Operations® (SFO®) designation for ASBO. The certification is earned after school business professionals complete a program validating their skills and giving them the knowledge necessary to be exemplary in their profession. For more information, contact your local Horace Mann representative or visit ASBO International's website.
Since our earliest days, Horace Mann has enjoyed strong relationships with national, state and local education associations. Our founders were members of the Illinois Education Association (IEA). Today, we maintain close ties with the IEA, as well as many state and local affiliates of the National Education Association (NEA).
In addition, Horace Mann has partnered with the National Education Association Foundation since 2001 to recognize, reward and promote excellence in teaching through the Horace Mann Awards for Teaching Excellence.
We’re proud to be a national sponsor of DonorsChoose.org, a website that connects donors with educators who have classroom projects in need of funding. Since our partnership began in 2011, we've donated more than $2 million to projects.
