Who We Are
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 school in achieving its goals for quality education.
By looking at what the school system was unable to provide, the members saw an opportunity to organize and expand its base. These industrious members formed a corporation and gained status as a tax exempt organization.
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.
