In 2012 the Millbrook Educational Foundation celebrated over a decade of giving to the local community. Over all these years the generosity, involvement and interest of our supporters have enabled MEF to invest in innovative educational opportunities for the students of the Millbrook Central School District. Since its inception in 2001, MEF has awarded more than 140 grants to teachers and programs in the district, providing more than $700,000 in enrichment, technology, and arts education to all four schools.
MEF’s mission is planning for the future – our children’s futures. It is important that they are ready to take up the leadership roles in our communities. They are our employees, employers and civic leaders of the next generation. It is in our deepest interests that they have the best educational opportunities possible so that they are prepared for the complexities of life in the 21st century.
With this in mind, the Millbrook Educational Foundation created an endowment. We realized it was time to take the next step. Together with the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, we created the Millbrook Educational Foundation Endowment to ensure that MEF’s work would continue long into the future. This endowment will allow MEF to continue to be a vibrant partner with the Millbrook Central School District.
This is an exciting step as we build the endowment each year and in turn it provides MEF with an annual revenue stream that will grow as investments grow. MEF is committed to delivering enrichment, technology and arts programs to the MCSD for the long term and our endowment will support us in doing that. Please join us in ensuring for our children’s education!
