The Madeira Schools Foundation was founded on July 20, 1984 by a group of enthusiastic parents and community members who had worked to make the high school’s outdoor track a reality. As time passed they recognized the need to assist the district in achieving its goals for continued quality education.
The Foundation sponsors an annual fundraising auction, which over the years has become an entertaining social event for Madeira. In the past 20 years the MSF Auction has raised over $2 million. The proceeds from the auction have been used to pay for such things as scholarships, computer hardware and software, athletic facilities, new seats for the high school’s auditorium, theatre arts program, science lab building, equipment, an alumni fund and much, much more.
