The Morris Educational Foundation raises money through several signature fundraising events each year: The Morristown’s Talent show, Toast 2 Teachers and Teacher Tributes. All of the net proceeds from these events help the MEF fulfill its mission.
Morristown’s Talent Show
Morristown’s Talent Show is a community event featuring the brightest talent from our area. Anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Morristown, Morris Township, or Morris Plains can audition. The sold-out performance is held in the February/March timeframe each year at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, the Community Theater in Morristown.
Toast 2 Teachers
Toasts are parties held in honor of a special teacher, coach, principal or other staff member in the Morris School District. Parties are hosted by district families and can be any type of gathering – pizza party, ice cream social, pool party, round of mini-golf, bagel breakfast, sit-down dinner, backyard BBQ, the list is endless. They can be in your home, in the backyard, at a park, in a restaurant, or anywhere your group can fit! Parties are held for two weeks in May-June.
Teacher Tributes are a great way to acknowledge administrators, counselors, assistants, coaches, custodians, librarians, nurses, conductors, bus drivers, secretaries, and of course, teachers. During the winter, your honoree will receive a certificate of appreciation with your heartfelt sentiment. In the spring, honorees receive a beautiful rose, complete with your personalized message tag.
