Edge of Excellence

The ASFM Annual Giving Campaign and Fund is aimed at creating a long-lasting culture of giving through a tradition of parents, alumni and friends taking direct responsibility for the School’s continued success.

It has been established to provide unrestricted support for current operations, and to become an alternate source of revenue for the School. Donations to the Annual Fund will go towards projects that will be completed in a 12 month time frame following the end of the Annual Fund Campaign. The following five projects would be funded by the Annual Giving Campaign:

  • Flexible learning spaces for ELEM and MSHS
  • Creative play space for ELEM
  • Maker pods for ELEM and MSHS
  • Amphitheater for ELEM
  • STEM labs for MSHS

The Focus of the Key Campaign Projects is:

  • Individualized learning
  • Creative learning
  • Maximize individual potential
  • Balance of innovation, arts, science, and technology

The Annual Fund Campaign will be a 6-week long effort by the community and for the community that is led by a team of ASFM Parent Giving Ambassadors. The campaign will take place from October 11- November 18.

Our hope and desire is to raise sufficient parent donations to fund the five innovative projects aimed at individualized student learning, creativity, maximizing individual potential, the arts, science and technology.
