Dear Millbrae Families,
This holiday season, give the gift that truly keeps on giving: an investment in your child’s education. They will be thanking you for years to come. Donate by December 31st to lower your 2014 tax bill!
We are less than halfway to our 2014-15 goal to retain music and computer education in our 5 district schools. As of December 18, we have raised $168,000 of the $350,000 necessary to keep these programs going. If you have not already contributed on behalf or your student, now is the perfect time: MEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and your contributions are 100% tax-deductible! Donate one-time or monthly, or make a single contribution before the end of 2014 for tax purposes, and then setup affordable monthly payments to take care of your contribution moving forward!
The Millbrae School District eliminated elementary music and 2008 due to State budget cuts, and contributions to the Millbrae Education Foundation made it possible to bring it back to all of elementary students as well as expand the program at Taylor Middle School. Our contributors have also funded 100% of the computer education our elementary and Taylor Middle School students have been receiving since 2012, as well as teacher training in utilizing technology in the classroom. IF WE FALL SHORT, these programs will have to be reduced. However, our immediate goal is to INCREASE the frequency of music and computer education our students receive. We cannot do it without EVERY DISTRICT FAMILY contributing any amount they can.Your participation is the key!
Shopping on Amazon for holiday presents? Please use Amazon Smile for MEF, and 0.5% of your purchase will fund music and computer education in our 5 schools. Thank you to all of our families who joined us a the Barnes & Noble book fair, both in-person and online. View & share photos of our students and volunteers on our Facebook page.
On behalf of the Millbrae Education Foundation Board, I wish each of you a safe and happy Winter Break. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and we’ll see you in the New Year!
