In order to do more, we have to raise more.
In 2012-2013, we raised $280,000. These funds are being used this academic year as follows:
- Ongoing funding of two full-time Technology teachers and a district-wide technology program.
- Supporting important teacher training focused on technology and the new common core standards.
- New funding for an elementary Music teacher who’ll provide music education and enriching learning opportunities for all students in grades K-5. This program will include classroom music lessons for grades K-4 and instrumental music for beginning band and orchestra to 5th graders. (Made possible, in part, by the Millbrae School District’s funding of the instructional aides that the MEF has funded in the past.)
Community support and generous donations of time, money, and in-kind gifts make this possible!
We ask for a donation of $450/child. If every family was able to donate this amount, we would raise over $1 million dollars!
And, if every family gave $200 per child, we would still raise over $400,000.
Participation is the key! You can donate via a monthly installment plan on our website, donate during Donation Days, when donations can be doubled by our Community Challenge Grant, and ask your employer to match your donation. You can also volunteer at school events, participate in MEF Nights Out and help your student fundraise during our annual Walk-a-thon.
We hope your family will join ours in supporting our schools today.
Donating is easy, flexible and fully tax-deductible and can be done by either credit card or check. As an example, for $50/month you can make your full $450 donation over nine months.
Make your donation today! Volunteer your time! Know that whatever you do, whether a little or a lot, is the right choice.
Our Kids. Our Future. Our Choice.
