Friends of FM Athletics
WHO WE ARE
The Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics is a non-profit, tax exempt, public charity that was established in 2011 to bring back and preserve Junior High Sports at Fannett-Metal School District. Since the conception of the organization, we have contributed to various other needs of the Fannett-Metal athletic programs. Our overall goal is to support Fannett-Metal Athletics in anyway necessary or possible. The Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics (FOFMA) operates independently of all Fannett-Metal tax revenue.
Membership of the Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics (FoFMA) consists of the members of the board of directors, the FoFMA officers, and the FoFMA Wall of Fame Committee. All members serve voluntarily and without compensation.
The mission of the Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics (FoFMA) is to provide financial support for Fannett-Metal sports programs and facilities, in order to provide and encourage the development of life skills through the experience of athletics.
In 2011, due to state budgetary cuts, the Fannett-Metal School District made a decision to cut all Junior High athletic programs. In light of this action, the Friends of Fannett-Metal Athletics (FoFMA) was organized to raise funds with the hopes of returning the Junior High athletic programs back to the school. After one year without any Junior High athletic programs, FoFMA raised enough funds to support and eventually return ALL of the Junior High athletic programs. Since its origin, FoFMA has funded over $150,000 to the Fannett-Metal School District for Junior High athletics, athletic equipment, gymnasium renovations, and other contributions to support the athletic programs for its students. Money for all funding is obtained through donations, memorial contributions and fund raising held by the FoFMA membership.
