The Community

The Manatee Education Foundation and its Partners are enhancing public education in Manatee County every day. At the MEF, we have a saying, "If everyone gives a little, our kids will gain a lot." And, it is precisely true. If our community, businesses and families all contribute to our classrooms, even just a little, through time or treasure, the educational experience of all students will improve.

Please watch this video on how people and businesses are making a difference in Manatee County classrooms, one magical moment at a time.

The Manatee Education Foundation could not make all of its programs and sponsorships possible without its many dedicated community supporters, volunteers and corporate contributions.

Below is a list of our current and upcoming events. Click the links for additional event, paticipation and sponsor information to see how you can get more involved.
