MSD of Martinsville Education Foundation

How can you help our education foundation raise the funds this week for teacher projects?

The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created in 1986 to enhance educational opportunities for students at the MSD of Martinsville. Though separate from the school district, the Foundation gives scholarships to teachers and staff to financially support innovative programs when traditional funding is unavailable.

“The Education Foundation is a way for the Martinsville community to give directly back to our students and schools. It’s important because it helps fund opportunities and experiences that some might not otherwise have,” -Lisa O’Neal, Wooden Middle, and Mimi Boyd, Poston Road Elementary, co-presidents, MSD of Martinsville Education Foundation.

For over 30 years, we have distributed over $345,000 to enrich our students’ education. During the 2023 school year, we funded 10 projects totaling $10,073.40.

The success of the Foundation is dependent upon the generous contributions of our community. Through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC), tax-deductible donations can be made easily by clicking the donate button. Never forget even the smallest gift combined with others can have a profound impact on the lives of our students, on teacher experience, and ultimately make a difference to our community.
