MVSEF Secures Largest Gift in 30 Year History
We are excited to share that the Mounds View Schools Education Foundation is the recipient of a $750,000 gift from the William, Rose and Norma Bailiff Memorial Scholarship. This donation – the largest single gift in the foundation’s 30 year history – will annually provide generous college scholarships for high school students from Mounds View Schools. Bailiff Memorial Scholarships will be awarded primarily to students from lower-income families.
This extraordinary gift, announced today during the MVSEF’s 6th annual Partnering for Education lunch, is from the trust fund of Norma Bailiff, who passed away in December of 2013. Norma lived in the Mounds View School District and shared her family’s passion for public education.

“The Bailiff family is passionate about helping local students knock down financial obstacles to help them realize their dreams,” said Gail Gaylord, Norma Bailiff’s niece and executor of the fund. “We hope these scholarships will help deserving students find success in higher education, and ultimately, become leaders of their communities.”
Today is a wonderful day for Mounds View Public Schools, and we owe it to the enormous continued generosity of the Bailiff family. Thanks to this gift, the Bailiff name will be cherished in our community for decades – perhaps even centuries – to come.

Annual supporters are offered numerous benefits and more importantly impact the lives of Mounds View students throughout all the schools in our district.
