The check presentation at Somerset Academy Stephanie Campus,, was attended by more than 200 teachers, families and school administrators and over a dozen McDonald’s owner/operators. The MAC Grants program provides local teachers an opportunity to fund an activity which gives students a unique and interesting learning experience they may not otherwise be able to afford.

Grant recipients are teachers who submitted applications to McDonald’s owner operators describing the specific activities they plan to provide to their students with the funding during the 2016/2017 school year. In recent years, MAC Grants funding has provided local classes with STEM robotics programs, green houses, zoo visits and cooking classes.

McDonald’s Southern Nevada owner/operators are proud to give back to the community they serve. Throughout the year, McDonald’s supports a variety of programs that focus on education, literacy and the well-being of children, including Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Eggs for Education fundraiser.
