Help Support Public Education in Madison on May 3

As you know, The Madison County Education Foundation is focused on all aspects of educational opportunities in Madison County. We believe that Education is the cornerstone on which we build a strong and thriving community. We know that our children are our county’s future and that the best investment we as a county can make is in our children’s education. MCEF supports education through teacher grants, student scholarships, and a non-profit resource center.

We ask that you consider making a donation to MCEF during The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation’s annual Give Local Piedmont fund drive for local non-profits on May 3rd.

Remember … every dollar donated to MCEF stays in Madison County… every gift makes a difference.

Thank you for all you do to help support public education in Madison!

MCEF awards $8,850 in grants to teachers

Madison County Education Foundation awards $8,850 in grants

Teacher grants are a centerpiece of the Madison County Education Foundation (MCEF) mission.

“The common thread,” MCEF President Barbara Kres Beach said, “is that our teachers know what our students need; each grant adds something special that supports learning in the county and helps make our young people successful. There is no single formula.”

This year, the foundation awarded grants totaling $8,850—more than ever before. Faculty applicants cited goals, grade levels affected, methods of assessing project success, project budgets and their principal’s agreement in their applications. Awards this year were made to teachers at all four Madison County Public Schools for projects that, according to Beach, “excelled in usefulness, creativity and sustainability.”
