Annual Parent Campaign


Support the MPAEF so together we can enable excellence in our schools!

We are a community-funded school district and every year, district families and friends make pledges and gifts during the MPAEF Annual Parent Campaign. Their generous contributions, large and small, make up the lion’s share of MPAEF’s annual grant to the Menlo Park City School District. In 2017-18, the Foundation granted $3.7 million to the Menlo Park City School District and saw 64% of District families making pledges and gifts. Broad-based parent support means that the District can make an enduring commitment to our teachers.

How to Participate

Families can participate during the Annual Parent Campaign by making a gift. All participation is meaningful. All donations are tax deductible. Go to our "Donate" page to get started!

Employer Gift Matching

Many employers match our community’s parent gifts through corporate matching programs that give an equal donation when employees make charitable gifts. These corporate donations increase the amount of money MPAEF receives during the Annual Parent Campaign.  During the 2017-2018 school year - we received more than $270,000 from employer gift matching!
