It Began With A Vision

A vision for a community-funded effort which would benefit all Marengo and Union residents by enhancing the quality of education in our public schools.

Since its founding in 1992, MASEF (the Marengo Area Schools Education Foundation) has worked to build an endowment fund which would enrich and enhance educational programs and opportunities for elementary and high school students through annual gifts to Marengo’s three public school districts.

The foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of local residents who oversee these gifts to Marengo Community High School District 154, Marengo – Union Elementary School District 165, and Riley Community Consolidated School District 18.

The foundation is driven by a belief in one overriding principle: In education, good is never good enough.  Nothing short of excellence in education will prepare today’s students for the challenges of tomorrow --challenges they will face in their roles as business owners, employees, and community leaders.

The reality of public education has placed budget constraints on our schools.  The foundation provides financial support which can make a financial difference between a very good education and an excellent one -- in order to bridge the gap between what is, and what can be.

Invest in the future of our community by pledging your sport to the foundation.  Together, we can fund the future -- a future in which we all have stake as a community.
