School foundation raises $3.6 million for Menlo Park district

For the second consecutive year, the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation has raised $3.6 million to supplement funding for teachers and classroom programs in the Menlo Park City School District.

Representatives of the nonprofit foundation, including students from the district's four schools, presented an over-sized mock-up of a check for the $3.6 million donation at the June 10 school board meeting.

Fundraising efforts by the foundation have resulted in more than $25 million in donations to the district over the last 11 years. The latest grant will supplement the district's 2014-15 fiscal year budget.
