Donating to NHS FOM

Each year, FOM tries to increase our ability to support the music programs at Needham High School beyond the previous year, by contributing greater financial support. We appreciate your interest in donating to our efforts by completing our printable donation form.The revenue we raise from contributions through our annual appeal and other fundraising efforts provides support in the following ways:

Scholarships and Awards
Up to $5000 is awarded each year to help defray the cost of attending state and regional music competitions for vocal, band, and orchestra students, fund attendance to the Drum Major Academy at UMass each year for the selected Marching Band student(s), and fund senior scholarships and awards for graduates who qualify and have participated in NHS music department performance groups and/or have worked in tech or stage crew.
Spring Social Event
All music students and their families are invited to attend the annual Caberet in May, hosted by FOM. Come celebrate the end of the year with NHS Music Department faculty and friends. An award ceremony will honor our graduating seniors and a select number of underclassmen.
The Bob Ayoub Instrument Fund
These funds are designated for the purchase and replacement of school-owned instruments for all bands and orchestra.
Communications & Technology
FOM funds enable parents to receive up-to-the minute information on music activities through our website, printed materials, and email communications.
FOM generously arranges for refreshments throughout the year, including:
  • Tech Week: to over 90 students during final rehearsal week of the musical
  • WinterFest: at the dessert buffet
  • Student Concerts: to audiences at all chorus, orchestra, and band concerts  

Please join your fellow music families and committed members of the greater Needham business community in creating a solid financial foundation for the NHS music programs. We encourage you to download and complete our FOM Donation Form and send it along with your tax deductible donation to:
