The purpose of the Mequon-Thiensville Education Foundation Endowment Fund is to help provide longer-term sustainable funding for the Mequon-Thiensville School District.
Contributions to the fund can come from designated donations and from Board allocations.
Your donation will help us reach our goal of a $1,000,000 endowment. As of our fiscal year-end, June 2015, we are proud to state that the endowment fund balance was over $500,000. When the Endowment reaches $1 million, the Foundation will then consider withdrawing a small percentage from the principal, annually, for operating expenses and/or grant fulfillment as deemed appropriate by the Board. Due to the generosity of our donors, the endowment is more than half way there.
The Fund is currently managed by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and is invested in a mix of stocks and bonds.
Your donation to the endowment will have a longer-term impact ensuring a better future for our school district. You can make a designated donation to the endowment in honor or in memory of someone which is a great way to pay tribute to someone special.
