The McMinnville Education Foundation was created in 1998 to provide learning enrichment opportunities for students in the McMinnville School District. Located in McMinnville, Oregon, the foundation is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization that has made its mark by funneling money directly into our children’s classrooms and promoting educational excellence for all students. The foundation has awarded over $282,000 during the past 14 years to benefit the students of School district #40.
The foundation raises grant money from parents, businesses and other interested citizens through two main fundraisers: the Fashion Show and Starry Night. Held the Saturday before Mother’s Day, the Fashion Show is a multi-generational affair where attendees enjoy a sit-down luncheon, wine, glorious raffle baskets, and fun spring fashions modeled by teachers. Starry Night, a magical gala held in the heart of Willamette Valley wine country, takes place every July (on hiatus in 2013) with a silent and live auction, dinner, and dance.
New in 2013 is Runtoberfest. This fundraiser will be a family-friendly fun run with a 10k, 5k, 1k, and relays followed by Oktoberfest festivities in the Gateway District.
In this era of shrinking school budgets, support from the Foundation is essential. We welcome donations year-round. And remember, your contribution directly impacts student learning.
In today’s educational world, enrichment opportunities are more important than ever. Help us help McMinnville School District students. Your support is valuable and greatly appreciated!
