  • Our mission is to support and advance STEM focused programs and services at McPherson Magnet School by working with teachers, administrators, students, families and businesses.  Over 20 years ago a group of committed parents formed this foundation to empower students with a quality STEM education. Since its inception, the foundation funds the programs, activities and resources necessary to provide a competitive directed STEM curriculum to its students.
  • As a 501(c)3, the McPherson Education Foundation raises monies, awareness and support for McPherson Magnet School;  Our students depend on the foundation to provide and maintain this STEM tract. Because this is not something covered by the school district, the foundation must continually work to create long term sustainability for programs as well as upgraded materials for students to have competitive experience.  Our vision is to see every McPherson student boldly challenging the standards, pushing the ceiling of possibility and learning to think analytically. For our students to be successful in this way, we must work in the community and with the community. With your support we can ensure every enrolled student at McPherson Magnet School has the opportunity to push the boundaries of what is possible in their education.
  • Each year, we coordinate  host our big fundraiser STAR Mission, as well as other Special Events and Sponsorship Programs. The McPherson Educations Foundation  goal is increase community engagement and support.
