Are there any more Donation Days/Walk-a-Thons this year?
If we reach our goal, we will not hold another fundraiser of any kind until May (MEF Night Out/Silicon Valley Gives). We hope that Millbrae district families make their contributions by October 4 so that we can meet our $35,000 Community Challenge Grant, and so that our volunteers can connect to Silicon Valley and SF money for our schools. When our families show strong support for the foundation by October 4, we can seek external funding.
What is MEF’s fundraising goal for 2015-16?
We have a school year goal of $400,000, half of which ($200k) we want to raise by October 4. Last school year, we raised $335,000, which enabled the district to expand MEF-funded music and technology programs. Once the foundation reaches $500,000 annually, we will qualify for many more education grants.
What is the best way to support MEF?
Ideally, we would like our families to combine both one-time and monthly contributions. Give as generously as you can (we appreciate ALL contributions, no matter the size!) by October 4, and sign up for affordable monthly contributions to help sustain the foundation without fundraisers. In addition, please check to see if you or your spouse work for one of the hundreds of companies who will match your tax-deductible contribution to the Millbrae Education Foundation. Every year, donors who take the extra 5-10 minutes to request this corporate matching money garner our school many thousands of dollars at no extra expense!
