A Donation to MEF is a Donation to LP

The goal is to have 100% of the families whose children attend a Moraga public school contribute to MEF, because all students in Moraga schools benefit from MEF support. All donations make a difference, so please consider making a gift that is meaningful to your family. Your support is appreciated at any level.


What is moraga education foundation?

Moraga Education Foundation (MEF) is the primary fundraising organization for all Moraga public school students TK-12th grade, including Los Perales. MEF's mission is to raise funds to bridge the gap between state education funding and the real cost of educating our children.


Many people think that because of our high property values, we have well-funded schools. But that isn’t the case. California ranks 32nd in per-pupil funding and Moraga is actually one of the lowest-funded districts in the state. State funding only covers the basics; excellent public schools in Moraga are possible because of your donations to MEF.

where does the money go?

This year, MEF granted $2.55M to the Moraga schools. These grants make a significant impact on the quality of education your child receives. At Los Perales, your donations to MEF fund:

  • Science Teachers

  • Science Classroom Supplies and Improvements

  • Art Teachers

  • Music Teachers

  • Reading Tutors

  • Librarians

  • Counselors

  • Student Support Services

  • Wellness Center Development 

  • Grants to use for the educational supplies or special projects of their choice

These programs would not be possible without your support! Learn more about how to donate to MEF.
