3rd Annual MEF Gala 2020

Breaking Records

On Saturday, February 29, the Millbrae Education Foundation (MEF) held their 3rd Annual Gala. Parents and educators from all campuses, community leaders, and philanthropists donned sophisticated (and some unique) masks ~ set for a night of generous giving, libations, and fun with friends!

The memorable night would not have been possible without generous support from our sponsors; the hard work from all our volunteers; and the unbelievable participation from all our guests.

Thank you to our District and School Leaders, all our MEF volunteers, the wonderful City of Millbrae, and all our supportive GivingTuesday (official and unofficial) Ambassadors for spreading the word these last few weeks, for sharing/re-sharing, for GIVING of your time, and for DONATING to the Millbrae Education Foundation.

Thank you to everyone near and far who supported our GivingTuesday Campaign.

Every dollar donated will go towards our effort to hire one additional instructional aide per school site by 2021.

This year, Mayor Wayne J. Lee, issued an official GivingTuesday Proclamation for the City of Millbrae!

The MEF, a proud participant of this worldwide movement of charitable giving, in collaboration with Mayor Lee and the City of Millbrae, is advocating for charitable giving and random acts of kindness on December 3, 2019 and throughout this season of giving.

We are specifically encouraging our neighbors, friends, and families to give to the MEF (please see our infographic below).

What can you do for GivingTuesday this year?

  • GivingTuesday isn't about just one day of giving. It's a movement to think beyond ourselves and our world. It's about doing acts of kindness everyday. Why not start this GivingTuesday?
  • Support the MEF by donating (click on the blue button below). If you've already donated for this year (thank you!), we still need LOTS of help. Let others know - neighbors, friends, relatives near and far! Share our Instagram handle and Facebook page!
