Who We Are: Foundation

The Madera Elementary Foundation (MEF) was founded in March 2015 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Its operations and activities are governed by its Articles of Incorporation and its Bylaws.

The Foundation is run by a board of a dozen parent volunteers and works closely with the PTA, the teaching staff, and the principal. The Foundation board meets monthly to conduct regular business, and at our annual public meeting in May, we elect the board for the next academic year.
