The Mathews School Friends for Excellence (MFE) created an endowment fund in 2005 to support Mathews Elementary School’s students, staff, parents and alumni. As of August 2011, MFE has received tax-deductible donations of $63,000. The interest from this untouched fund finances initiatives for student and teacher programs at Mathews. A new fund supports alumni scholarships. Anyone is welcome to join the MFE committee meetings at noon on the second Tuesday of the month. If you can’t attend meetings, you can support the MFE by working on special projects, with a donation online at www.austincommunityfoundation.org or by dropping off a check at the Mathews office. If you have questions, send email to email@example.com.
