Our fundraising efforts include our bi-annual rummage sales and our popular annual auction every Spring. The 11th Annual FOMWS Fiesta and Auction in May 2016 raised over $58,000 for our school which is being spent in much-needed capital improvements to the school grounds as well as enrichment and educational programs for our students this year.
Thanks to your support FOMWS was able to fund three after-school programs this school year, including a free Homework Club, Chess Club and Robotics Class. Click here to learn more about the after-school programs.
Also new for this school-year is Garden Committee partnership with Enrich LA. Learn more about the garden and how you can 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
