Donor support is vital to FASRI students' success: your gift makes all the difference! Thank you.

The Dominique Velociter Founders’ Endowment Fund establishes a permanent level of support for the School, a signal that our community is planning for the long-term success of this unique dual-language institution. In time, interest garnered from this inaugural Fund will provide a continuity of financial support for the professional development of the dedicated and skilled teachers who are critical to FASRI’s mission.

Our school needs your help! Support the FASRI Fund.

THANK YOU for your support of the FASRI Fund: our goal is to raise $50,000 to ensure we can give the best dual language education possible to our students. We need your help. To help us this school year, please make your gift by June 30, 2014.

Tuition alone doesn't cover the full price of FASRI's top-ranked immersion and dual language program.

It's expensive to satisfy the lofty standards of the French Ministry Education, which certifies our curriculum and methods. It's expensive to maintain and expand a facility serving hundreds of pounding feet and energetic minds. This is where the FASRI Fund comes in. 

What your help buys

Your financial support helps FASRI with everything: from our advanced computer network ... to teaching materials in both languages ... to physical plant improvements ... to building our cash reserves and rainy day funds ... to recruitment of teaching staff. This year, we're giving you the choice of what you would like your gift to support:

  • Technology for all: your support brings digital cameras, Smartboards, laptops, and iPads into the classrooms, helping to inspire, engage, and teach.
  • Enrichment programs: ice skating, swimming, and sailing are just some of the hands-on programs that challenge students to take risks, be resilient, and trust in their own potential.
  • Professional development for teachers: we are investing in and supporting our faculty through training to help them to build on their skills, innovate and collaborate, and bring out the best in our students.
  • Financial aid: supporting families in need has always been a priority for FASRI, keeping our community diverse and inclusive.

Our classrooms depend on your generosity more than you might imagine. When you're solicited, please say yes! Should a FASRI Fund designated area become oversubscribed, FASRI will direct your gift to where it is needed most. Merci!
