What is Friends of Albert Einstein Academies (FoAEA)?
FoAEA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit parent teacher organization dedicated to providing enrichment to AEA students and to supporting the Academies. Since our founding in 2007, FoAEA has served as the fundraising arm to the elementary and middle schools and is also the organization that puts on school community events. We work in collaboration with the parents, administration, teachers, and Board of Trustees.
All parents, teachers, and staff of AEA are members of FoAEA. We welcome your input and feedback and encourage participation from everybody at our board meetings.
Accomplishing our goals requires your support
Thanks to the support of Einstein families we continue be able to support many wonderful enrichment programs for AEA students. We hope you’ll participate as much as you can. We know it can be challenging to be involved when juggling work and family. We welcome any and all contributions of time or money no matter the size. We believe you will find a warm community at AEA and know you will find your efforts rewarding.

We raised almost $150,000 during the 2014-2015 school year through donations from AEA parents, events, grants, and sponsorships. This amazing effort from our Einstein community enables us to increase funding to the programs we support and new programs. Over 2/3rd of our funding comes from just sources: individual donations and the Gala Auction. This is why you will hear so much about those during the year. FoAEA's budget for 2015-16 is $150,000.
