Good morning. I’m happy to announce that the Marshfield Education Foundation’s (MEF) grant cycle for the 2016-2017 school year is now open. The MEF will be taking grant proposals up through April 29th. Directions and blank proposal applications have already been distributed to teachers and staff across the district.
I urge everyone to take a close look at the MEF grant process. This organization has worked very hard over the past five years to raise funds that go directly towards innovative projects that cannot be covered by the school budget. For the past five years they have granted over $400,000 in grants. Last year alone, they gave $107,830 towards eight outstanding grant proposals. The MEF cares greatly about Marshfield educators and they want to help support creative, ‘out of the box” initiatives. Every school and every grade level is eligible to take part.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact my office and good luck to all grant applicants.
