The Fremont Education Foundation (FEF) is busy tabulating the amount raised from its "Safari Adventure - Education in Excellence Gala," fundraising event held on February 24. Although not all sponsorships and receipts have been received, preliminary results show that FEF will net somewhere around $13,000.
The Foundation would still appreciate donations since the more money raised, the more Innovative Education Grants (IEGs) can be awarded to Fremont's K-12 teachers for innovative programs in their classrooms. These grants are intended to fund materials and programs that could not otherwise be funded and to engage students in learning, using innovative teaching techniques. FEF's goal is to enhance student achievement, provide experiential opportunities in the arts, foster leadership and character development, and promote physical fitness.
Donations can be made payable to Fremont Education Foundation, IEG Grants Program and mailed to:
Fremont Education Foundation

Fremont, CA 94538-1304
Also, please note that the FEF Annual After-School Band Telethon is coming up on March 20-22. This telethon raises funds for a different FEF Program-- the after-school band program in grades 4-6 at every FUSD elementary school. Mark your calendars and thank you so much for your support!
