Our Contributions

Since 1995, the Mt. Shasta Education Foundation (MSEF) has raised over $500,000 for Mt. Shasta public schools: Mt. Shasta Elementary, Sisson, Mt. Shasta High School, and Jefferson High School. These funds from MSEF provide programs, supplies, and instruction that would not otherwise be funded. As a result, our students benefit from more opportunities and an enhanced education experience.
