Missouri Retired Teachers Foundation was formed in 2004 when Missouri Retired Teachers Association and School Personnel decided to build their own office building.  By 2012, the building was built AND paid for and we needed a new purpose.  Retired school personnel know that many of the needs and wants of current teachers go unmet due to the lack of funds for Missouri public schools.  New purpose found - MRTF would award grants to classroom teachers.  In 2012, MRTF awarded one $500 grant in each of our 14 regions.  By 2016, MRTF had awarded 238 grants worth $119,000!!!  And in 2017, we will be awarding 6 $500 grants per region for another $42,000!!!

MRTF's goal for Give Ozarks 2017 is to raise funds for our endowment fund.  It is our dream for our endowment fund to completely support our Classroom Grant program. 

Community Foundation of the Ozarks has generously offered Missouri Retired Teachers Foundation a $5,000 matching grant which means if MRTF can raise $5,000 on Give Ozarks Day, CFO will match that $5,000 with an additional $5,000!!!

Won't you please make a donation to MRTF to:

  • Support current Missouri classroom teachers?
  • Help Missouri Retired Teachers Foundation with their Classroom Grant Program?
  • Help Missouri Retired Teachers Foundation win a $5,000 matching grant from CFO?
