The Free Horizon Montessori Foundation (the “FHMF”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in 2002 to support Free Horizon Montessori.  The purpose of the Foundation is to serve as the fundraising arm of the school and provide an independent bank account from which the school could draw upon to support itself. In 2006, the Community Support Network (CSN) was established by FHMF to better address the needs of the FHM community.

Your CSN is excited for the upcoming year and has created the 2016-17 CSN Welcome Packet.   It is four pages containing all sorts of handy information and links.   Check it out.
