About Us

Munster Education Foundation (MEF) is a nonprofit organization that serves as a vehicle to solicit and allocate funds to enrich the programs, activities, and facilities of the School Town of Munster.

Since its inception in 1992, MEF has awarded over $250,000 in grants to teachers, administrators, parents, and community members throughout the five School Town of Munster schools for new and innovative education experiences beyond what the current school budget can support (see this Northwest Indiana Times article to learn more).


Support MEF

MEF also administers the Teacher of Merit Award to eligible Munster teachers. This five year program began in 2015 and has already awarded over 165 teachers throughout the district $510,000.

The community's support is essential in helping us help our schools. Please consider a financial contribution to MEF.
