Each year, the school successfully operates on the annual per-student allotment we receive from the DeKalb County School District. This means that all of our instructional and operating costs are covered. However, that allocation does not cover renovations and capital improvements to our facilities. We depend on our community – including parents, teachers, staff, grandparents and other friends of our school to help us meet this financial need. The Foundation is the vehicle for these fundraising efforts.
The Museum School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) governed by a board of directors consisting entirely of volunteers. The Foundation Board works closely with The Museum School Board to identify needs and priorities, and ensure all of the money raised through the Foundation is allocated to the designated projects. Since its formation in 2011, The Museum School Foundation has raised millions of dollars to successfully fund the required renovation of the existing school facilities. The Foundation will continue to support the school as it grows and seeks new ways to better serve its students and the community.
