MEF News and Events

The mission of the Millbrae Education Foundation (MEF) is to raise funding to maximize educational opportunities for ALL Millbrae students. But it doesn't mean we can't inject a little bit of fun while supporting our main cause. We have events to bring our students, parents, community, and businesses together to build relationships and have some fun while raising much-needed funding for Millbrae Schools.

READ-A-THON is coming back in January 2023!

Students are getting ready to read, read, and read!

This fun event encourages the joys of reading and raises money for our schools. Students will log the amount of time they read and collect donations from friends and family to raise money to support the MEF's fundraising goal.
