How MEF Donations are Spent
The Montevideo Education Foundation exists to raise funds and secure community support for programs at Montevideo Elementary School. The foundation, chartered by the Site Council, creates major fund-raisers such as the annual Auction Gala, and seeks community and business partnership that help drive programs at our award-winning school. Membership is open to anyone who makes a financial donation to the foundation.
Public school funding in California has been in crisis for several years. California's per-student public school funding is among the lowest in the nation. But what does that look like at Montevideo Elementary School? Take a look at the tables below:
What State/District Funding Provides
What We Currently have at Montevideo
(everything on the left, PLUS)
None of us would accept the school in the left column. The school we have, represented in the right column, amounts to about $190,000 in donations and fund-raising each year. This is what YOU and your peers create through your donations to this school. And while nobody like to ask for money, our reality is that If we don't ask for donations each year, our school will become less like the one on the right, and more like the one on the left...which isn't the school for which we moved to this community.
THANK YOU for your support of our school!
