Who we are:

The Meadowbrook Education Foundation ("MEF") is a tax exempt, non-profit foundation dedicated to increasing the technology resources available in the school . MEF's mission is raising funds to provide resources to Meadowbrook that can improve the quality of the educational environment. Since it's inception, MEF has focused primarily on technology investments consistent with the Meadowbrook technology strategy, as established by the principal and school staff. MEF is comprised of parents, educators, and other members of the community that want to help ensure that our students have the technology and other resources that they need to succeed.
