What We Fund

The FUHS Foundation provides funding across the district to ensure that all our students are offered a full range of opportunities.

While government funding covers the basics, donations from parents and community enable supplemental programs that enhance our students’ educational experience — from STEM to applied arts and performing arts, to athletics and Robotics, plus college readiness programs.

The Foundation was once again able to  allocate $410,000 to support our students!

Testimonial from Byron Lee of Homestead High School

 

Dear FUHS Foundation,

We would like to thank you for your generous donation of $7,000 to each of the five FUHSD robotics programs. The FUHS Foundation’s continuous support has made an impact on each of our members’ lives.

Robotics is special because it is a real-life application of math, physics, and engineering. With your support, we’ve made it an environment that fosters lifelong learners and innovators—so thank you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stretch our limits and create a product we are proud of. Hundreds of us across our five teams, spend over 40 hours/week after school designing, building, and coding a robot. To be honest, we’re all addicted—to the community, the challenges, the aha-moments where everything clicks. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to feel that scream-at-the-top-of-your-lungs adrenaline rush of competition and the joy of seeing our robot in action. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our knowledge and skills with others so that they too have the chance to fall in love with robotics.

 

Thank you so, so much for helping us build this wonderful community and friendships that last lifetimes.
