We wish to thank our contributors for helping the children of the Merrillville Community School Corporation reach their full potential through the generous donations they have made to the foundation.

Since 2002, the Merrillville Education Foundation has awarded 486 grants to teachers totaling $411,986.27.  These grants have impacted more than 132,272 student experiences in grades Pre-K through 12. We could not have done this without the ongoing support of these and past contributors:
