Who We Are
The Morikami Park IB Foundation was organized in 2005 by a group of parents in order to amplify their impact through shared resources and common causes. Since its inception, the Morikami Park IB Foundation has amassed an archive of tangible results contributing over $500,000 towards various projects that have enhanced the educational environment at the school. The foundation is governed by an eight member Board of Directors which is accountable to donors and sponsors. Most importantly, the foundation is supported by parents and local businesses. It is this support that helps the foundation be successful in its mission to support programs that enhance the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) at Morikami Park Elementary School.
