about the foundation grant programs
contributors how you can help
The Maynard Education Foundation was established in 2000 as a non-profit, private charitable organization that enhances educational excellence in the Maynard schools by supporting and rewarding innovative teaching.

Each year, the foundation provides grants directly to teachers to spark innovative teaching and learning opportunities not provided for in the budget.

Help make a difference in our schools!

Curious Creatures Visits Maynard High School

This spring Nancy Griffin's 8th grade students learned about the effects of climate change on different species. Thanks to a MEF grant, the students were able to interact with some of the species in person when Curious Creatures visited their classroom. One of the students enthusiastically remarked, "This is the best science class ever!"
