Education is a powerful thing. It is the most influential element for bringing positive and lasting change. Unfortunately, many children don’t have access to it. The marketing research industry is compiled of highly intelligent individuals who want to use their education to inspire others. That’s why The Marketing Research Education Foundation (MREF) was created. MREF is an international foundation dedicated to enhancing the educational opportunities for children and youth worldwide.
MREF is a high profile, industry-wide initiative that involves researchers from every level of the marketing research industry across the globe. The foundation will use financial and human resources to provide the tools necessary to give children access to a quality education.
MREF funds projects that promise to improve education worldwide, and seek to unite researchers from around the world to help, whether through teaching, building a school, installing computer libraries or simply reading to children. With these efforts, MREF hopes to transform the lives of children through education, thus improving the well-being of communities around the world.
