The Fremont Public School Foundation focuses on three main initiatives every year. We also support other projects and fundraisers where we can help as needed. Our three main initiatives each year are the Creative Teaching Grants, the Academic Achievement Banquet, and our annual Jim Ebers Golf Classic. For more information, click on the heading below.
During the 2015-16 school year the Fremont Public School Foundation distributed $6,775 in Creative Teaching Grants to 16 teachers for a variety of classroom needs. Every year we challenge teachers to submit proposals that will allow them to become more effective teachers and help students improve their achievement. To see our 2015-2016 recipients and how they utilized the grants, as well as to find grant applications, please go here.

Making A Difference funding is administered by the Fremont Public Schools Foundation and is available to FPS educators at all levels and all buildings. This funding source, which can be in collaboration with a community organization, will be posted online on the Fremont Public School Foundation’s website. Citizens can browse proposals online and make a tax deductible donation to fully or partially fund a proposal.
To be considered for Making A Difference funding, the application process is identical to the process of applying for a Creative Teaching Grant. A single application may be reviewed for both funding streams. However, the two funding sources differ in this way: Making A Difference applications will be accepted throughout the year, whereas in order to be considered for partial or full funding from the Creative Teaching Grant, applications must be submitted by the Creative Teaching Grant deadline. To apply for Creative Teaching Grant and/or Making A Difference funding, please go here to print an application form.
At the end of every school year, the Fremont Public School Foundation honors the highest achieving students of Fremont High School along with a mentor that has been instrumental in their achievement. In 2016 we honored 41 students and look forward to growing that number in the future. For more information on the annual banquet go here.
Who doesn’t like to hit the links with friends to support a good cause? Every summer, we host a golf tournament to raise funds than enable us to keep helping teachers and honoring students. Starting in 2014, we have renamed the tournament the Jim Ebers Classic in honor of everything that Jim did over the years to help support the teachers and students of the Fremont Public Schools. We’d like to thank everyone who came out in 2016 and look forward to another great crowd in 2017. To find more information on the Jim Ebers Golf Classic, and the link to a registration form go here.
Fremont High School Track and Field Renovation
The Fremont Public School District will be completely renovating the track base and running surface at the Jon Applegate Field during the early part of the summer of 2016. To complete renovations for the jump runways and high jump approach, as well as to add a digital timing system to the scoreboard, donations are being sought and solicited to raise approximately $50,000 to complete this project. Donations may be sent to the Fremont Public School Foundation, noting it is for the FHS Track and Field Renovation Project, or you may utilize PayPal, which is available on this website under the Donations tab. To see the donation form and options, go here. Your support would be greatly appreciated!
