Thank you, Marblehead community, for your continued support of the Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools (FMPS). Your generous donations have helped us fund innovative educational grants that benefit all of our public school students.

Whether you’re a native ’Header or new to town, you know that a strong public school system benefits our students, teachers and ultimately our entire community. For more than 25 years, FMPS has awarded more than $1.5 million in grants for math, science, fine arts, literature, and technology programs for our students, and professional development for our teachers.

What exactly is Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools (FMPS)?

FMPS is a volunteer run 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides privately backed funding in the arts, sciences, math, and technology for our students, and professional development for our teachers.
For over 25 years, FMPS has awarded over $1.4 million to worthy educational endeavors.  FMPS does not fund school building repair/maintenance, staff salaries, basic supplies or operating costs.

 How do our schools benefit?

FMPS awards collaboratively developed grants in math, science, the arts and community-building to enhance the curriculum at every grade level. Teachers and students often point to these programs as the most memorable and rewarding of their school experiences.

How does our town benefit?

A strong public school system strengthens our community and encourages our students to become productive, well-educated citizens.  By funding groundbreaking initiatives we attract exceptional teachers to our district and families to our community.

Why donate?  

Public school budgets are tight and fixed expenses continue to rise. FMPS brings critical, cutting edge programming and resources to our district that would otherwise not be funded.
