Unprecedented Giving

$167,478 Awarded

Each November, the staff of USD 263 submit grant applications to the Mulvane Education Foundation (MEF) for consideration. A committee is established shortly thereafter to review the applications — looking for duplications, justification for funds and merit for the classroom and/or students — then ranks them accordingly. The Mulvane Education Foundation establishes the level of available funding, compares it to the ranking, then funds as many requests as possible. Grants are awarded in January.

Past grants are listed below.
