The mission of the MCEE is to partner with parents, the Milpitas Unified School District and the community to raise funds for providing educational opportunities for all students in the district as well as encouraging community involvement and support for our public schools. 


With your generous support, we have raised over $70,000 for the endowment (a permanent funding source for the district), which is well on our way to our $100K goal. We continue to need your support to reach that goal.


Over this past year, MCEE has:

  • Partnered with the Jung Family Charitable Fund to provide $500 for a MHS scholarship (we have provided over $5,500 In scholarships over the past 7 years)
  • Continue Project Inspire to offer middle school students to hear from working professionals on college, vocational training, and careers.

This coming year, MCEE will be:

  • Hosting a candidates forum for school board in November
  • Partnering with the Chamber of Commerce to hold a summer job fair for high school students

Please use the attached form to donate to MCEE or donate online at


Thank you for your support.

Robert Jung, Founder, MCEE
