The Ed Foundation raises money each year to fund additional school staff and programs to enhance the curriculum at Franklin and public schools in Santa Monica. The Foundation asks parents, grandparents, community members and local businesses to donate each year. The Foundation also raises revenue from fundraising events. Essential staff and programs, such as our classroom aides and P.S. ARTS are paid for through donations to the Ed Foundation. Without sufficient donations, we would not be able to have these staff or programs at Franklin. For a complete list of programs and people supported at Franklin visit here.
Our Franklin PTA fundraising and budget committees and Executive Board (12/3/2020 approved vote) propose that the Franklin PTA make a $20,000 donation to the Ed Foundation this year. Franklin PTA has donated to the Ed Foundation in previous years, as have other SMMUSD elementary school PTAs. Franklin’s contribution would show our continuing support to our community while also helping to sustain Ed Foundation-supported programs.
Please feel free to contact Cindy Mahamitra, our Franklin Ed Foundation Liaison, if you have any thoughts or questions.
