The Mission of the Mequon-Thiensville Education Foundation is to develop community-wide private financial support for the Mequon-Thiensville School District, and through grants, to help support continued excellence in education.
Statement of Purpose
The Foundation is committed to helping address the budgetary shortfalls and to ensuring that the Mequon-Thiensville School District advances in technology, curriculum, and personnel. Declining enrollments coupled with the unfavorable state funding formula make this a fiscally challenging time for the Mequon-Thiensville School District. Creation of strong private-public partnerships empowers supporters of public education to partner together to make a difference as we prepare our students for the 21st century global world.
