Impact of Giving
Manheim Township Educational Foundation provides resources to educators, administrators and students and school-related groups for innovative educational programs. MTEF grants support the “aha moments” – inspirations, insights, and ideas – that take learning experiences to the next level. Projects increase engagement, differentiate instruction, encourage collaboration, integrate disciplines, connect curriculum to real life and elevate education across the district.
Benefiting thousands of students annually, MTEF-funded projects align with the Manheim Township School District’s comprehensive plan and mission to nurture and challenge for success. Your support of MTEF enables us to fund innovations at every grade level as we strive to create an exceptional educational experience for all students.
