MEF Auction Gala 2024
Saturday, March 23, 2024

Why is MEF hosting an Auction Gala?

The Auction Gala is one of Moraga Education Foundation’s largest fundraisers of the year. It offers the foundation an opportunity to diversify its fundraising efforts and bring the community together for a fun and enjoyable evening.


How will MEF utilize the funds raised at the Auction Gala?  

Funds raised from the Auction Gala will supplement the foundation’s annual campaign fundraising efforts, which supports every student, every day by helping bridge the gap between state education funding and the real cost of educating our children.
