What is MEF?
Moraga Education Foundation (MEF) is a non-profit organization run by Moraga parents and is solely dedicated to supporting all students from kindergarten through graduation.
Over our history, MEF's role has evolved. Initially, the foundation provided limited educational enhancements and teacher's grants costing less than $30,000. Today, MEF funds critical educational programs at a cost of more than $2 million annually.
These funds along, with local parcel taxes, help make up the lack of state funding to our schools ensuring every student receives the quality education required to reach their full potential.MEF's board of directors consists of parents, community members and PTA Presidents from each of the 3 elementary schools and JM and the Parents Club President from Campolindo.

- Spread the word and show your support by liking Moraga Education Foundation on Facebook and proudly displaying your MEF sticker on your car.
- Donate early and encourage others to do so.
Why does JM need both PTA and MEF?
Both PTA and MEF share a common goal - the betterment of our children's education.
JM PTA invites parents and families to become involved at their school site. PTA recruits volunteers and provides programs such as Bridges, Cotillion, Hot Lunch, Creative Arts & Writing, Reflections, Book Club, Science Fair, to name a few. Last year, parents and other family members gave more than 13,000 hours of service at Joaquin Moraga.
MEF's goal is to raise the funds necessary to provide our children with the most competitive education possible. This year at Joaquin Moraga, MEF is funding the following: the new K-8 Writing Program, Technology, Math Boost, Writing Aides, Music/Band Teacher, Art Teacher, Librarian, Classroom Teachers and Aide, Elective Support, Curriculum Instruction Specialists (in Math and ELA) and Counseling.
PTA and MEF Working Together:
- JM PTA supports MEF as the primary fundraiser for our district.
- With your donations, MEF will continue bridging the gap between what public education offers and what a competitive, 21st-century education should be.
- JM PTA will continue to advocate for all students, build a stronger community at JM through programs and events, and recruit volunteers to make this year another successful year at Joaquin Moraga.
Every JM student greatly benefits from your support of MEF and the JM PTA.
