Important Announcement

MEF Annual Spring Fundraiser



Our mission is to offer our public school educators the opportunity to enhance their regular curriculum by applying for grants for their innovative ideas that would otherwise not be available to the classroom. We are dedicated to encouraging educational excellence for all students in the Metuchen Public Schools. 


The Metuchen Education Foundation Inc. (MEF) is an independent, nonprofit corporation created in 1996 by a group of parents, local business people, and other professionals to raise funds and develop partnerships to enrich programs for students in the Metuchen Public Schools.

​Over the years, your donations have funded grants that supplied a multitude of technology for our students, such as Smart Boards for the entire 5th grade, applications on iPad’s and iPads for Kindergarten and 3rd grade classrooms.  We’ve also funded non-technology related grant requests, such as drums for the high school marching band, fitness programs, and cultural inspirations that enhance classroom and personal growth.
