We are extremely grateful for donations of any kind in any amount. No matter how big or small, it will make a difference in the lives of Maine Ocean School students.
The Maine Ocean School Foundation was created to raise supplemental funds through grants, gifts from organizations and individuals, and larger corporations to support the Maine Ocean School. The Maine Ocean School Foundation Board of Directors are a group of dedicated volunteers working hard to raise monies needed to assist the Maine Ocean School in its inaugural year and beyond. As Maine’s second public magnet school, Maine Ocean School receives some funding from the state. Those funds alone do not cover the total cost of educating our students to align with the curricula for this innovative school. There are gaps in funding that are typically covered by resident taxpayer dollars in local school districts. As a statewide magnet school, we do not have these local funds. The Foundation has taken up the challenge of raising funds to provide student scholarships, activities and equipment, staff training and development, and innovative technology and curricula.
Maine Ocean School Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization established to support, enhance, expand, and enrich students' educational experiences through private donations, gifts, and grants. Maine Ocean School Foundation helps to carry out the mission and vision of Maine Ocean School by raising private funds to support programs beyond the core school budget.
