The MTEF hopes to help the students of Manchester Township School District by fostering community support and finding creative funding alternatives to assist in meeting educational needs not completely met through the annual budget or other resources.
We have provided $200,000 in grants and scholarships to Manchester students and classrooms. Our students are now using items such as iPads, Kindles, digital projectors, document cameras, musical instruments, and materials and equipment for science, math, reading and arts programs that would not have been available to them under the limits of the annual school budget.

Reviews for Manchester Township Educational Foundation
MTEF is dedicated to improving the educational experiences of Manchester students. A volunteer board of directors, along with some great volunteers, have made great strides toward this goal. Over the past six years, our Educational Foundation has hosted Golf Outings, Fall Raffles and other fundraisers to raise funds to support our students and our schools. MTEF has provided $23,000 for Classroom Mini-Grants (computers, iPads, Kindle tablets, projectors, books, math programs, digital cameras, and more); has donated $38,000 for technology equipment (computers, interactive whiteboards, projectors, MOBI interactive computer tablets) and in support of our current technology project to install WiFi in our district schools. MTEF has partnered with generous community businesses, organizations and individuals to provide over $60,000 in scholarships to our graduates, provided funds for class trips, and more! All of this has been accomplished with a handful of dedicated volunteers, and with community support, over the past six years. I am proud to be a member of this organization, and grateful for the opportunity to serve with like-minded volunteer members, to support our Manchester students.
