Celebrating 30 Years of Supporting Our Schools

The Munster Education Foundation marks its 30th anniversary in 2022, and we're celebrating by awarding more grants than ever to Munster schools, teachers and co-curricular activities. Look for announcements of our new monthly grant awards throughout the year. Want to join us in supporting Munster education? Make a donation to the Munster Education Foundation today.

Our "30 on the 30th" celebration on Aug. 30 drew a number of former and current MEF board members as well as school administrators, teachers and supporters from throughout our community. The festivities included presentation of an award to Linda Hess, founder of MEF, for her integral contributions to supporting innovative and experiential learning in our community.
