MCEF awards $8,850 in grants to teachers

Madison County Education Foundation awards $8,850 in grants

Teacher grants are a centerpiece of the Madison County Education Foundation (MCEF) mission.

“The common thread,” MCEF President Barbara Kres Beach said, “is that our teachers know what our students need; each grant adds something special that supports learning in the county and helps make our young people successful. There is no single formula.”

This year, the foundation awarded grants totaling $8,850—more than ever before. Faculty applicants cited goals, grade levels affected, methods of assessing project success, project budgets and their principal’s agreement in their applications. Awards this year were made to teachers at all four Madison County Public Schools for projects that, according to Beach, “excelled in usefulness, creativity and sustainability.”

Our foundation is continuing to work with the Madison County schools and community organizations to ensure that education continues during these difficult times. We are adapting our work to meet the current needs of the groups we work with.

We are reaching out to our community to ask for your financial support. We elected to forgo our spring fundraising efforts last March due to the uncertainties of the time. We now ask you to help us out so we can give the maximum support possible to the schools and other community educational groups that we traditionally support.

Your Support Matters!
