"In this era of shrinking school budgets, support from the Foundation is essential."

MEF has awarded over $470,000 in teacher mini grants since 2000 to benefit the students of School District #40.


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.
