Millbrae Education Foundation
The Millbrae Education Foundation would like to thank all the PTA/O's (Taylor, Green Hills, Lomita Park, Meadows, and Spring Valley), the District, all our hardworking teachers and staff, our Millbrae partners and sponsors, and all our families.
We are grateful for the donations to our Annual Fund and to the Pandemic Relief Effort.
We hope you all have a safe, restful, and joyful Thanksgiving weekend.
The City of Millbrae issued a proclamation in 2019 that every first Tuesday of December will be a day of philanthropy, kindness, and community. Please join us and donate to all Millbrae District schools.
Pandemic Relief Effort

Current MEF Annual Fund Drive
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 $79,000 (13% 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.

MEF President Message Summer 2020
MEF raises funds to help hire teachers and implement district-wide programming.
Because Millbrae is among the lowest-funded districts in San Mateo County, your contribution to MEF has a big impact!
The magic of MEF is based in community: teamwork between parents, community members, teachers and staff, and our other supporters from the larger Millbrae community has a big impact on Millbrae students! Interested in volunteering?
