Mt. Pleasant Public Schools Education Foundation Fund

For more than 100 years Mt. Pleasant Public Schools have inspired amazing lives. The roll of alumni is filled with outstanding citizens with great accomplishments. However, like most states, funding for public education in Michigan has been declining for many years. This decline in funding, and the global requirement for ever-improving education, are at odds.

Established in 2010, the Mt. Pleasant Public Schools Education Foundation (MPPSEF) was organized by a dedicated group of community leaders, educators, parents and local business owners to enhance and supplement the curriculum of the Mt. Pleasant Public School District. The MPPSEF is an independent, community based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping all Mt. Pleasant Public Schools students achieve their highest potential by providing community support for the innovative and excellent opportunities which cannot be funded through the core budget.

In 2013, the Mt. Pleasant Public School Education Foundation Fund was established at the Community Foundation as a permanent endowment fund--providing long-term, sustainable funding for the MPPSEF.
