Two Moorhead foundations merge to better serve students and Moorhead Area Public Schools

September 13, 2019

Moorhead Schools Legacy Foundation and Moorhead Area Education Foundation are joining forces in supporting Moorhead’s schools and students. In July 2019, each board of directors voted unanimously to merge as one entity, called Moorhead Legacy Education Foundation.

MAEF has primarily provided graduating seniors with scholarships and teachers with grants through funding from endowed funds. MSLF has been providing teacher grants within Moorhead Schools and holding fundraising events to pay for snack/milk breaks for current elementary students in the district. Together, the newly merged board of directors aims to address the needs of students in grades K-12 and beyond, while also supporting the staff and facilities of Moorhead Area Public Schools.

MAEF President Lisa Staiger said, “Together we can do more for the students and teachers of Moorhead Public Schools. Our goals are bigger, and we believe our reach will be higher now that we have merged to form Moorhead Legacy Education Foundation.”

The announcement of the merger was made at the Moorhead Schools all-staff assembly on Aug. 26. The merged foundation’s first joint event will be the SpudTacular Gala, with entertainment by Post Traumatic Funk Syndrome, on Oct. 5. Tickets and sponsored tables are available for purchase at
