Welcome to the Friends of Mt. Washington School website. The 2016-17 school year is upon us and we are excited to continue our campaign supporting Mt. Washington Elementary School as a center of our community.
You can help the cause by purchasing weekly organic produce boxes, bringing recyclables to school on Green Team Mondays, volunteering and becoming a member of FOMWS. Membership is open to the community.
Our fundraising efforts include our bi-annual rummage sales and our popular annual auction. The 11th Annual FOMWS Fiesta and Auction raised over $58,000 for our school which will be spent in much-needed capital improvements to the school grounds as well as enrichment and educational programs for our students this year. Please get involved by volunteering for the Auction Committee. Contact us here to volunteer >
Please join in with Friends of Mt. Washington to make our school and community stronger!
THANK YOU for making our public school great!

The mission of Friends of Mt Washington School (FOMWS) is to raise funds to support the educational goals of our school, expand enrichment opportunities for our students and maintain capital improvement projects that benefit the school community. FOMWS is a non-profit 501(c) (3) booster organization that was created in 1993 to fund the extra curricular programs the LAUSD did not fund. We are committed to supplementing the education of the children of Mt. Washington Elementary School by forging partnerships with businesses and individuals in our community.
FOMWS is also the Joint Use Partner with the State of California and LA Unified School District for the community access and use of the Jack and Denny Smith Library and Community Center.
HOW WE DO IT
We engage community through auctions, fundraising events, and memberships to our organization. Learn more
