Enhancing French Immersion Education in Milwaukee

The mission of the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation(MFIF) is to enhance French Language programs in Milwaukee French Immersion School(MFIS) and the Milwaukee School of Languages(MSL). With the help of MFIF, our programs maximize the learning potential of every student and prepare them to excel in a competitive global economy.

Over the past seven years, the Foundation has raised funds to bring 50 native-French-speaking Language Models to support over 100 classrooms at MFIS and MSL. These Language Models, from France and other French speaking countries such as Senegal, Switzerland, Belgium, and Gabon, work directly with our children helping to enhance their aptitude for the French language while broadening their cultural experiences.

This year, we are raising $13,200 to bring six Language Models into classrooms for the 2020.2021 school year. To reach this goal we need the full support of our school communities. Please make a gift today and help ensure the continuation of challenging and enriching education experiences for our students. A gift of:

$200 will provide a monthly stipend for one Language Model

$100 will provide a city bus pass so one Language Model can get to school

$50 will provide a weekly stipend for one Language Model

$25 will contribute to the monthly stipend for one Language Model
