FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM SCHOOL (FOMS)
Who? You! Friends of Museum School is our version of a Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO.) We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that helps fund all sorts of programs that directly benefit our children and school. By simply being a member of the school’s community, you are a member of FOMS. How much you choose to participate is entirely up to you.
Public school funding has been inconsistent and precarious for years now. The Friends of Museum School has raised over $145,000 annually for the last few years to ensure that we can continue to offer, among other things, World Music, Kitchen Science, Physical Education and more. Without this money, the school simply wouldn’t be able to offer all that it does.
We raise this money in a variety of ways including a few large annual events throughout the year such as our Gala, our Art Auction and our Golf Tournament, as well as smaller more targeted fundraisers such as bake sales, restaurant nights and book fairs and that benefit specific events, programs or grades. Additionally we have an annual campaign where parents, grandparents, friends and community members can give money, either monthly or in a one-time donation. Of course, all donations are tax-deductible.
