Dear FunRun Participants,


Thank you for registering the first Millbrae FunRun! It was wonderful to see so many of you at the pickup on Sunday. We hope you enjoyed your pancake breakfast, courtesy of our wonderful Millbrae Lions Club. If you didn't make it on Sunday and have not received your tshirts, please email funrun@millbraekids.org to coordinate a pickup time.


You can complete your 5K run/walk anytime before May 31st. We are so excited to see your pictures (wear your shirts)! Email your photos to funrun@millbraekids.org. And, please remember to fill out this completion time form (1 per participant) by June 2nd. Each person who submits a completion time form will be entered into a prize drawing. We will post a list of all the participants on the MEF website.


Thank you SO much to all our wonderful MEF volunteers for coming out in full force on a SUNDAY!


And a huge, huge thank you to the Millbrae Lions Club for sponsoring our Pancake Breakfast (and providing a total cash donation to the MEF of $10,000)! Thanks to School Board Trustee and Lion Frank Barbaro and Lion Jeff Spicker for chairing the breakfast, and to Lions President Wayne Lee and all the Lions for the hours of work you put in.

Dear Millbrae School District Community,

We want to provide everyone with an update of our fundraising events.

The events we are so proud to have hosted so far are listed below:

From our Annual Fund, we have raised $275,000 and from the Fund the Future Fundraiser, we brought in $127,000, for a current total of $402,000, which will be granted for School Year 2021-2022.

To put things in perspective, we granted the Millbrae School District $459,000 for funding programs in School Year 2020-2021. This grant was used to fund portions of different programs – Technology Coordinator, Elementary Music Program, and SEL Counselor.

We are so pleased to say that MEF Funds will be able to fully continue funding the Technology Coordinator and Elementary Music Program positions for the next school year. We are also pleased to learn that the District has received a one-time allocation of state and federal stimulus funds that can be used to support the Social Emotional Learning Counselor position for next year.

We cannot express how grateful we are to all our volunteers, donors, sponsors, teachers, District staff, and community members who were so willing to give what they could to help ALL our schools through a very challenging time.

We are hopeful that we will continue to come together for the remainder of this year, and the next few years.

In gratitude,

Joy Pasamonte Henry

President, Millbrae Education Foundation Board

THANK YOU so much to everyone who was able to donate so far.

There is still time to donate by year end (to take advantage of 2020 corporate matching, if applicable, and the potential tax-deduction on donations made).

Our 2020-2021 goal is $650,000. To date we have received $454,000 (70% of our Annual Fund Goal)

Funds raised this year go towards School Year 2021-2022. Unfortunately, we need to continue to push hard so that the MEF dollars can continue funding programs we have sustained for the last few years: Social Emotional Learning, Technology, our Elementary Music Program, and Legarza (or its equivalent to get kids moving and working together).

We have a long way to go. Our suggested donation amount is $500/individual and $800/family, however, ANY amount is greatly appreciated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not forget to submit donations for corporate matching AND check in with you tax advisor on the tax-deductibility of your donation.
