Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation raises $3.5M
The Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation (MPAEF) presented its annual grant to the Menlo Park City School District at the June 10 school board meeting. This year, the foundation raised $3.5 million.
"Despite the pandemic's uncertainty, our community came together and supported the One Community Campaign in fall 2020 to raise much needed funds for our schools' parent teacher organizations and the MPAEF," according to the June 23 district newsletter. "Our schools would not be the same without this campaign that supports libraries, science, music, art, mental health and wellness support, lower class sizes and so much more. And during the 2020-21 school year, the campaign also supported the Virtual Academy and other pandemic-related needs."
