FEF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 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.
To lift the Falmouth educational community to even greater heights, FEF is committed to:
- Fostering a Shared Commitment to Educational Excellence by seeking out and celebrating innovative ways to promote learning for all ages, both inside and outside of the classroom.
- Providing Supplemental Funding to institutions, groups and individuals who demonstrate educational ingenuity and seek grants to bring their visions to fruition.
- Building Community through volunteer engagement and partnerships with town residents, local businesses, and like-minded organizations.
What We Do
Through fundraising events and generous sponsorships, Falmouth Education Foundation has raised more than $1,000,000 over the past 25 years. A volunteer board of directors coordinates all fundraising activity. Funds raised support two grant cycles annually, several large scale projects, and the continued growth of a long-term endowment. The eventual goal of the organization is to fully fund the endowment, allowing its income to fund FEF activities.
