​​For over sixteen years, the McKenzie Education Foundation has been dedicated to enhancing the academic opportunities for McKenzie School District #68* students. In past years we have helped finance such things as online foreign language classes, musical instrument fees for needy students, grade and high school field trips, Salmon Watch, Advance Placement testing fees, supplemental curriculum materials and equipment. It is a start. We hope to do better, but we need your help.

​Who we are

​​​The MEF Board is made up of unpaid volunteers who are passionate about making McKenzie a special place for students to learn.​

Kathy Keable, Judy England, Margaret Beilharz, Pat Gripp, Kellie Cline, and others.

The M.E.F. pays for McKenzie River children's extra educational programs though direct donations and through selling McKenzie Valley historical calendars. The Donate button below enables you to make a tax-deductible donation by credit, debit card, and Paypal.  You can also mail a check to P.O. Box 274, Blue River, OR 97413.   If you can buy several calendars, that helps also. They make wonderful gifts.  Just fill out the form on the Calendar Tab. Thank You! 



Dedicated to helping students grow into productive and fulfilled adults...

For each of the last three years, we have published a glossy 11x17 calendar featuring historic photos of the McKenzie River valley and activities from the past that have taken place there. The calendars have been very popular as gifts during the holidays. To have a look, click the Historical Calendar link below.
