**Action Items**

                         Through our Save Mart Shares Program we received
      $92.72 in the month of April 2010 and received $147.80 in the month of
      July. We are hoping to increase the amount received every quarter. It
      was suggested that we write MUHSD Education Foundation on the back
      of any further cards that are given out. People may have various cards
      that are used around the businesses and this way they can see which
      organization they are donating to if they have more than one card to the
      same business. Also, we will contact our sites and see if they are in need
      of more cards to give out to our employees.
                         Greg Opinski Construction gave the Foundation a
      donation of $25,000. We received a check in March for $12,500, and one
      in July for $12,500.
                         Rae Owens motioned to approve the donations
      received and Ge Moua seconded. Vote 3-0
                         George discussed that we would like to offer
      scholarships to our staff for supplemental materials they can use for their
      classrooms. We would like to offer 10 $250.00 scholarships. There will
      be criteria set and an application form for the teachers to fill out and
      submit. The criteria will include using part(s) of the Strategic Plan
      Goal/Objectives. We will have a committee to review and award the
      scholarships to the teachers. Ralph motioned that we set up 20
      scholarships to the MUHSD staff. Ten (10) will be awarded for the fall and
      ten (10) will be awarded for the spring. Vote carried 3-0.
                          We will be contacting various vendors that we have
      used in the past to see if they would like to donate to the Foundation.
                         Rae asked about resources for AV equipment using
      Foundation funds for a donation to purchase equipment. George
      reported that anyone can contact the Foundation to inquire if they are in
      need of donations.
                        I informed the Foundation that when I was given the
       remaining balance from the previous year on the Margaret A. Brown and
       Robert Brown Scholarship amount, it was incorrect. We did not have an
       ending balance for the 2009-2010 year. Therefore, the check that was
       written on 6-14-10 to MUHSD to cover scholarships was $29,349.93, not
       the $26,776.04 amount that was stated at the March 2, 2010 Foundation

                      I discussed that we will need to have form 990-EZ filed
     with the Franchise Tax Board and Internal Revenue Service in November
     2010. Rae moved that we approve paying our CPA firm once the work is
     complete and also a check will be issued to file the form with the
     Franchise Tax Board. The total should be under $700.00. Ralph
     seconded with a 3-0 vote.

                     Reviewed the bank accounts and the transactions that
    have taken place since our last meeting March 2, 2010. Rae made a
    motion to approve the expenditures listed on the bank statements and Ge
    seconded. 3-0

**Information Items**

   George discussed that we will look at recruiting community members to be
      on an Advisory Council. We will look into getting a parent from each of
      our main sites that would come to our annual meeting.

    Our next annual meeting will be set for January 11, 2011 (2nd Tuesday of
      the month). Information will follow later in the year. We will also hold our
      annual meeting on May 10, 2011. Both of these meeting will begin @
      10:00 a.m. at the district office.


The meeting adjourned approximately 10:57 a.m.

Respectfully Submitted,

Caroline Bennett
