The Magnet Program Foundation (MPF) is the non-profit foundation dedicated to supporting and enhancing the ENRICH! Program at the Gravenstein Union School District (GUSD). The MPF provides some funding, volunteers, and suggestions for the ENRICH! Program in cooperation with the GUSD School Board, administrators, teachers, and staff.
