We believe great public schools are the cornerstones of a strong community.


Public education is accessible to all students, but is not truly free. 

The Moraga Education Foundation (MEF) believes in a broad-based community effort to give every student attending public schools in Moraga access to programs and staff beyond what the state of California provides.

Founded in 1981, MEF’s mission is to raise funds to bridge the gap between state education funding and the real cost of educating our children. 

Today, our schools are consistently top-ranked and our students are exposed to classes, programs and staff that would not exist without donations to MEF.

Great schools start with you!

Thank you to all of our generous donors who have helped support programs and staff throughout our public schools in Moraga. Please join them in supporting every student, every day by making a donation today.

I started as a teacher at Los Perales in 1969, and the classroom looked remarkably different. There were no reading or math tutors, PE or science teachers, art programs or classroom aides. MEF has grown into such a rich resource for our students!
