Run or walk in a race

CMEF created the “Sponsor-a-Mile” fundraising tool as a way for everyone to help our programs fundraise. The concept is quite simple. The tool enables any person to raise money for CMEF by asking other’s to sponsor-a-mile of any walk or run in which s/he is planning on participating. Click here to learn more.

Tell others about CMEF

CMEF grew organically during its first decade, from raising $3000 for college scholarships during the first year to over $500,000 for programs ranging from trips abroad to summer schools to writing projects. Please tell others you know about CMEF, whether they want to start a program to help make students’ educational dreams come true or they just want to support the amazing things we are doing. Either way, the more the merrier.


Our corps members and teachers are simply amazing! Their level on enthusiasm, passion, and care for their students is incredible. Still, everyone needs a little guidance and help from time to time and having a mentor that checks in and can be called on for advice is an invaluable resource. If you are interested in mentoring, please email us at info@cmef.org.

Board Directorship

CMEF has no paid employees and makes sure 100% of a donation to a specific program goes to that program. CMEF does not take a single penny from those donations, but rather raises money to pay for the operating budget, including the fees associated with accepting credit card donations, insurance, etc. In order to accomplish this important goal, we have an active board of directors and are always looking for committed individuals to serve on our board. If you are interested in working on the CMEF board, please email us at info@cmef.org.


Along with volunteers, CMEF offers internships for those interested in learning more about nonprofit management, fundraising, and development. In addition, we have a need for interns interested in web and app design and development, media production, and public relations. If you are interested in interning with CMEF, please email us at info@cmef.org.
