The Mequon-Thiensville Education Foundation (MTEF) was incorporated in 1998 as a non-profit organization committed to advancing educational excellence. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which operates independently yet in conjunction with the Mequon-Thiensville School District (MTSD) and Board of Education. The Foundation is a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. The MTEF benefits all six schools in the district consisting of Donges Bay Elementary, Oriole Lane Elementary, Wilson Elementary, Lake Shore Middle School, Steffen Middle School and Homestead High School.
During these fiscally challenging times, MTEF is actively collaborating with the district personnel and other school support groups with the goal of maintaining and sustaining important programs and projects, as well as supporting new educational initiatives. Funds raised are distributed to the district to enhance curriculum, technology, and personnel development. The Foundation also distributes teaching awards annually, in recognition of staff members who demonstrate exemplary leadership in the preparation of students for continued academic advancement.
Funds are raised primarily thought the following four initiatives:
Annual Giving Campaign
Tartan Bash (formerly known as the Tartan Ball)
Community 5k Run/Walk
Other events may be held throughout the year.
A Grants Advisory Committee, comprised of representatives from the MTSD and the MTEF Board, work to review and prioritize grant requests in order to advise and make recommendations to the MTEF Board on the allocation of funds.
