What we do:
The Falmouth Education Foundation was established in 2005 with the mission of enriching learning experiences in the Falmouth Public Schools. FEF funds innovative learning opportunities that cannot be covered by the schools’ operating budgets.
To date, we have awarded over $1,500,000 to Falmouth educators for projects from every discipline and grade-level, ranging from single classroom projects to district-wide initiatives. FEF funded a record number of 2022-23 projects, and small, impacting thousands of students across the district.

Where and When:
You may contact us via P.O. Box 1061, Falmouth, MA 02541, by phone at 774.763.2347 or visit our website at www.falmoutheducationfnd.org. Our regular business hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
FEF’s ability to provide grants ranging from single classroom projects to district-wide initiatives, often with community partners, is dependent on generous direct donations. Your support will help make a tangible difference in the lives of Falmouth educators and students.
An important goal this year is to ensure funding for two FEF programs: Teacher Opportunity Mini-grants and Ellen Barol Student Impact Grants. These grants are not funded through regular fundraising efforts, but through a single fund-a-need auction. Demand has increased eight-fold in the last two years for these programs, exceeding what the auction can support.
Teacher Opportunity Mini-grants provide support with unexpected educational opportunities that impact learning and are limited to $350/grant. The Ellen Barol Student Impact Grants are awarded to Falmouth public school students seeking to make a difference in their schools or communities and are limited to $300/grant.
