The Milford Education Foundation (MEF) awarded 13 teachers across the Milford Public School District $10,956 for creative projects that will be implemented over the course of the year. MEF’s Teacher Mini-Grant Program, now in its fourth year, is dedicated to supporting teacher projects that further enrich and enhance existing curricula.
Since it was founded in 2013, the foundation has distributed more than $35,000 in teacher mini-grants covering 52 innovative projects and initiatives for students of all ages. MEF supports its Teacher Mini-Grant Program through a combination of fundraising initiatives and sustaining donors. Last fall, the foundation raised more than $8,000 with its biennial Chair-ity Auction, which promotes artistic collaboration through student crafted and decorated Adirondack chairs.
