Who We Are
The Friends of Franklin Foundation (a 501c3 non-profit educational foundation) is comprised of parents, educators and community advocates united in the belief that children of all backgrounds deserve a wide array of learning experiences, designed to encourage, inspire and expand their horizons.
We are dedicated to investing in the long term success of all students at Franklin Elementary STEAM Magnet, stimulating young minds to achieve their full potential, overcoming barriers that limit personal growth, and shaping a better future for our youngest citizens, and in turn, our community.
To create a learning environment that supports “best in class” science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics instruction by providing teachers with robust resources that prepare Franklin students to be active, engaged global citizens.
To provide supplemental funding that sustains and enhances high quality STEAM classroom learning and extracurricular opportunities for students.
