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 student scholarships, computer hardware and software, athletic facilities, a new STEAM classroom at the elementary school, Annual Day of Service transportation, new seats for the high school’s auditorium, theatre arts program, science lab building, equipment and much, much more.
Throughout the year, The Madeira Schools Foundation accepts nominations for the Distinguished Staff and Distinguished Alumni/Citizen Awards program. Award recipients are honored at a special awards luncheon each spring.
