CARE for the FutureCARE, Citizens Alliance for Responsible Education, is the political action committee for COSA and OSBA. Its board of directors, elected by contributors of $100 or more, endorse candidates and make contributions to campaigns. CARE's goal is to assist candidates who support the goals of school managers and school boards to maintain local control of school district policy and provide adequate, stable and predictable school funding. Contributions to CARE are tax credits up to $100 per couple and $50 per individual. Collective political activities like CARE help keep COSA and OSBA competitive with much larger employee unions whose agendas diverge on issues of management rights and responsibilities and the importance of maintaining local policy making. CARE keeps this unique voice in education as part of the electoral process. If you have any questions please contact Chuck Bennett.
