Who we are

Motivated by the love and respect for great teachers and the students they inspire

Dream. Inspire. Innovate. The MVEF seeks to inspire students with innovative educational programming that prepares students for a successful life journey.

The Mt. Vernon Education Foundation was originally formed in 2007 by volunteers who were motivated by their love and respect for great teachers and the students they inspire. Today, the Foundation is led by its Board of Directors, with the help of many generous volunteers who dedicate their time and effort to enriching the educational experience of students.

The organization works to facilitate through business and education partnerships, the fostering of programs, alliances, and resources to impact student learning and assist educators within the public school system. The foundation supports these areas through programs, partnerships, and advocacy initiatives.

It is through providing funds to hard-working, dedicated teachers that we are able to change the way students learn in our community. We share the same goal with all Mt. Vernon educators: to help each child reach his or her greatest potential. MVEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation; therefore, all donations made to the foundation are tax-deductible as allowable by law.
