UPDATE November 17, 2020:  Immediate Mini-Grants Announced


As we all know, education in Marshfield looks different this year. Needs are changing and resources are strained. Effective immediately, the MEF has initiated a mini-grant application this fall to help with current instructional needs in this challenging environment. 


At MEF, our year looks different as well with both of our annual fundraisers, the St. Patrick’s Day 5K and Circus Smirkus, postponed or canceled and we need to adapt, too. In addition to our immediate mini-grants, we are launching a Fall Giving Campaign which we hope will raise the capital to fund the immediate requests as well as larger grants later in the school year.  


Mini-grant applications are due by December 1st and decisions on funding will be determined by December 10th. Please use this link to apply. 


Information on our annual grant process will be communicated at a later date and will be based on our fundraising efforts. We remain grateful for the hard work and efforts of educators and look forward to reviewing the mini grants!
