FEEF Begins Year with Donation

With generous support from the community, FEEF recently donated more than $70,000 to jumpstart or continue programs for Fairhope public school students during the 2016-17 school year.

FEEF board members and directors announced the gifts at a series of “back to school nights.” Each school receives $14,250 to support programs such as LEGO robotics, science lab, engineering, math, music, theatre and art. In addition, the non-profit recently donated a matching grant to The Pelican’s Nest Science Lab for updated equipment.

“These dollars, generously gifted by individuals and businesses in the community, allow Fairhope students to participate in programs that would not otherwise be available with state or local funds,” said FEEF Executive Director Cori Yonge.

FEEF programs place an emphasis Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Yonge said teachers would be able to apply for additional grants throughout the year.
