What is the Circle of Champions?

The Circle of Champions is a leadership annual giving club established by Midtown Educational Foundation in 2008 to provide a steady, reliable source of funding for MEF's after-school and summertime programs.

MEF programs enrich lives by focusing on academic excellence, virtue development, individual attention, and parental involvement. They deliver strong results and proven return on investment: 98% of middle school students gain admission to college prep high schools; 100% of high school seniors have graduated and enrolled in college for 15 consecutive years; and 91% of MEF alumni have graduated or are still enrolled in college.

Champion an At-risk Child Today
