Our Story

Since 1984, MEF has provided over $2,600,000 in grant awards to Martinez Unified School District Schools. Through our annual grant program we fund equipment, technology and materials for our students’ academic success. We raise funds through community efforts such as our annual Run for Education which began in 2003. The revenue from this event helps subsidize the huge gap in state funding necessary to guarantee our students quality programs and services. We have developed relationships with Martinez businesses, community members and parents who are also committed to enhancing the education of our students.
