Started by Local Leaders

Friends of the Montebello Unified School District Foundation (FMUSDF) was started by local Montebello business leaders and former Montebello Unified School District Administrators to provide financial support for students and the Montebello Unified School District (MUSD) for those needs that could not be met through state and federal funding.  FMUSDF works independently from the District. The Foundation directs charitable proceeds toward providing financial assistance to promote excellence in education throughout the Montebello Unified School District.
