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.   MEF has awarded over $470,000 in teacher mini grants since 2000 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 Runtoberfest. 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. Runtoberfest is a community and family fun run the first Saturday in October. Choose from a 10k race, 5k run/walk, or youth mile relay.

The 2nd annual Runtoberfest, Saturday, October 4th.


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!
