The Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation (SMMEF) has announced the second annual Pledge Days, a district-wide event to raise funds and awareness for SMMEF-funded programs throughout the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD). In conjunction with the event, the RGK Foundation will match all donations to SMMEF, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000, through Sept. 30.

From Sept. 26 to 30, SMMEF and PTA representatives will be at each elementary campus in the district to thank donors and encourage others to donate. Donations to the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation change the lives of students in the Santa Monica-Malibu public schools. Contributions fund excellent programs – from art to STEM to wellness – that shape our future problem solvers, visionaries and global citizens.
