Friends of Audubon (FoA or Friends) is a 501(c)3, all-volunteer, parent-run organization that was established in 2006 for the sole purpose of raising money to support Audubon School. Audubon parents provide the majority of donations received by Friends; however, Audubon is lucky enough to have amazing community support that is very generous to Friends.
Friends of Audubon raises money that is spent at the discretion of the Local School Council (LSC) on teaching and support staff, school-wide music and art instruction, technology equipment, software, and improvements to Audubon’s building and campus.
