Current Recipients

The Prize Patrol Day is fun for the Directors of MEF, who have worked hard all year raising the majority of money through special events. Before the fun, though, came the painstaking task of deciding which proposals would be funded. Directors serving on The Grant Committee reviewed the proposals “blindly”, without knowledge of who submitted requests. After carefully evaluating all of the submitted proposals and considering which grants have met the criteria, MEF was pleased to announce the following grant award:
