At the Missoula Education Foundation, we believe that funding education in our community is one of the best ways to leave a lasting impact. Funds to the Foundation make a difference, year in and year out, in our schools. Donor support means teachers can provide the vibrant learning experiences they want to, and likely would not otherwise be able to. Some recent examples: a programming class where middle schoolers can build small computers themselves, a leveled reader library that gets first graders excited about reading, probes and test equipment that allow budding high school scientists to run experiments firsthand.
We believe that Missoula’s future is grounded in our schools. We invite you to be a part of the Missoula Education Foundation family.

Every year, the Missoula Education Foundation is pleased to award scholarships through our Beyond Graduation Scholarship Program. This program primarily seeks to award funds to students who have overcome significant personal or academic obstacles, but have gone on to graduate and will attend an in-state college or university. Interested in supporting scholarships? You may give a gift to our Beyond Graduation Endowed Scholarship Fund, or make a one-time gift to be used within the year.
