Donate and Benefit Students
You can make a donation online by clicking here.
Help us cut the gap between what we collect per student and the actual cost per student. The difference in 2015-16 was $560 per student (the difference between tuition collected per student and actual cost per student). So your donations to the Annual Fund make a huge difference for our school! Every fall we have an auction for our school to help us close that gap. You can donate goods and services to be auctioned off and you can come the night of the auction and win some great items to bless the school.
Boxtops for Education!
This is one of most successful programs over the years that has provided supplies for our school – thanks to the support of our parents. Turn in those General Mills boxtop labels to the front office of the school or your child’s teachers. Your support through the school year will help us to continue to improve our school’s technology program. Since 2004, $27,000 (as of September 2015) has been raised in from this program!
You can donate the coke bottle tops with codes on the back and the designated area on a 12 pack case of Coke products to the school and we can turn the points into cash to help our school!
David Benton Scholarship Fund
Did you know? FMCS has financial assistance available based on need and resources. There are also scholarships available through the state of Florida. Each family that requests financial assistance participates in a financial needs evaluation process through an outside organization.
In 1995, the Development Council and the School Board agreed that we needed to establish an Endowment Fund. An Endowment Fund is one in which monies are donated and the capital is invested. We did not want to become so focused on the day-to-day operation that we would overlook the future. We wanted to provide a way in which an individual could give a gift that would go on giving well beyond his own life. The monies are invested through the well established Southwest Florida Community Foundation. The foundation is comprised of community leaders throughout Southwest Florida. A memorial plaque will be on display in the school in order to recognize the gifts given in memory of a loved one.
Grandma Betty Scholarship
Elizabeth Defebio was the grandmother of two former FMCS students, Audrey and Kelly Reese. Both of these students were very active in sports and music at FMCS. Their Grandma Betty passed away in October of 1998. She was also very active at FMCS with her consistent attendance at the girls sporting and music events. She touched people from all walks of life, and her memory will live on as one middle school student receives this scholarship award of $1200 every year. The student will be selected by the FMCS teachers and administration. Their decision is based on Christian walk, academic achievement and service to the community.
