The McFarland Education Foundation relies on contributions to providing scholarships to graduating seniors of McFarland High School and grants to educators within the McFarland School District.
Scholarships: McFarland Education provides scholarships to graduating students of McFarland High School pursuing post graduation education. Scholarships are granted to students based on contributions to the Foundation, through Endowed funds, pass through donations for scholarships and annual fundraising efforts. In 2023, the McFarland Education Foundation awarded over $60,000 scholarships to students. Your contributions benefit students through the amount available to provide students with scholarship opportunities.
