About Us

  • HISTORY

    The School City of Mishawaka Education Foundation was established in 1994 by a group of volunteers committed to the students of the School City of Mishawaka. They recognized that public funding, which has finite limits at any point in time, can not always provide for the kind of academic enrichment that encourages high achievement and excellence.

    MISSION

    The Mishawaka Education Foundation (MEF) is committed to providing School City of Mishawaka educators and students with sustainable funding required to provide extraordinary educational opportunities.

    VISION

    The School City of Mishawaka Education Foundation will develop an outstanding Foundation that supports Mishawaka student learning at all levels.
