In 1993 MPEF awarded its first scholarship of $300 with funds provided directly from the pockets of the foundation's visionary leaders. Since then MPEF has provided over $600,000 in awards for teachers, administrators, and students scholarships.
Why is our 25K for 25 years Campaign for our Anniversary so important? Our goal is to help keep our school system as one of the highest ranked public school districts in Michigan.
This year, the gap between the cost of educating a single student ($9,590) and the funds received from the state of Michigan is $1,959. We are asking our community to join us in filling the gap. Your donation - of any amount - in addition to our current fundraising activities will ensure that we are able to continue keeping Mattawan Consolidated schools strong.
