MAKING OUR EMPLOYERS WORK FOR US
Direct Corporate Grants to MEF!
MEF is looking for parents who work for tech firms to help us acquire corporate grants. Many tech companies (communications tech, biotech/biomedical, aerospace/maritime tech, etc) offer grants to non-profit organizations, but only if directly recommended by their own employees. For example, Qualcomm, Illumina, and Viasat all offer corporate grants if requested by their employees. MEF will prepare any application or writeup needed – but we need YOU parents to make the recommendation!
If you work for a tech company, please reach out to MEF at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Make Sure to Ask for Your Corporate Match!
Many companies offer their employees a corporate match for donations to non-profit organizations. Have you checked in with your employer to see if they’ll match your donation to the Foundation? Please check the PUSD Matching Gifts.
Search to see if your employer will match your donation – you could DOUBLE your impact!
Thank you to all the donors who have supported the Foundation! The Midland Educational Foundation is a tax exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
