The Falmouth Education Foundation (FEF), founded in 1993, enhances educations excellence and promotes innovative student development by supporting educational programs and initiatives that primarily benefit children, pre-school through grade 12, who are residents of Falmouth.
Who We Are
Like other education foundations, FEF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We were founded in 1993 by a group of involved community members who wanted to support and enrich the academic, athletics and arts programs that fell outside the school and town budgets. Our mission is to promote innovative student development and to enhance educational excellence for all Falmouth children.
What We Do
Each year we raise funds through a series of events. A volunteer Board and cadre of volunteers organize and run these events. With the tremendous support of our community we have raised over $900,000 over the years. We invest 10% of what we raise in a long-term fund to ensure our sustainability and through grants we invest the remainder back into the community.
How We Do It
Each year we raise funds through a series of events. In past years we have held the Fall Auction, Community Spelling Bee, Rummage Sale, and Kitchen Tour. A volunteer Board and cadre of volunteers organize and run these events.
Our extraordinary success is because we have:
- An Outstanding School System
- An Engaged and Active Community
- A Generous Local Business Support
