WHO we are
The Mahwah Schools Foundation (MSF) is a parent volunteer organization whose mission is to support excellence, creativity and innovation in the Mahwah public schools, grades K-12.
WHAT we do
The MSF fundraises throughout the school year in order to fund great ideas that energize the academic and creative lives of Mahwah students but are above and beyond our school district budget. We host events throughout the year to bring the schools, community and Mahwah families together.
WHERE the impact is made
Through our teacher driven grant program, our children are directly affected by the innovative ideas submitted by our incredible Mahwah teachers. No one knows better what the students need to increase their academic success, foster creativity, and support their well-being than our teachers.
WHEN we fundraise
Throughout the school year we hold various types of fundraising events to support our schools. In the past, the MSF has hosted events which include Ladies Night Out, Gala, Casino Night, the Thunderbird Run and a 50/50 Raffle.
WHY it's important
Since its founding in 2000, the MSF has given back over $1,900,000 to our schools through the grants program. It is because of our volunteers and the support of our community that this has been achievable.
MSF GIVES BACK $69,000+ IN GRANTS TO MAHWAH SCHOOLS
In June 2019, members of the Mahwah Schools Foundation presented a check to the Board of Education after approving over $69,000 in grants that were submitted by Mahwah teachers. These grants directly align with the MSF's mission of supporting creativity, excellence and innovation in all of our schools.
WINTER 2021 GRANT APPLICATION OPENS SOON!
Every year the Mahwah Schools Foundation fundraises to support the academic and creative ideas that energize Mahwah students but are above and beyond the school district budget. These incredible ideas are generated by our teachers whose hard work and dedication in undeniable. This year the MSF is hopeful to hold one grant cycle in the winter of 2021 to help bring these ideas to life.
