Support FMC

"A month at FMC is the best thing that can happen to someone. It's full of lots of love and care, and, of course a lot of music."
-- Camper reflection

Help everyone experience FMC!

FMC tuition reflects the full cost of running FMC each year.  Some of our camper families are able to pay this fee; others need financial assistance.  Your donation provides scholarships for these campers.  In 2016, we were able to give nearly $30,000 in scholarship assistance to FMC campers, thanks to the generosity of donors like you.   We gratefully accept contributions to the FMC scholarship fund in any amount. No amount is too small!  

Donations we receive in excess of the scholarships we grant each year are used to build up our endowment fund, thus providing help for years to come. 

You can contribute right now by clicking the button above to make a donation via Paypal, using your credit card or Paypal account.
