About Us

The Foundation for Belmont Education (FBE) works with residents and businesses in the Town of Belmont, Massachusetts to raise private funds that are used to enrich the education provided by the Belmont Public Schools.

The FBE has successfully granted more than $3 million in support of hundreds of projects initiated and organized by administrators, teachers, and staff.  See our Impact section for more details.

In addition to support from community members, the FBE is the recipient of sponsorship from many local businesses. These businesses support the FBE on a yearly basis, at different levels, and share the FBE’s commitment to the Belmont Public Schools. Learn more about our local business sponsors.

While the Foundation cannot be a substitute for public support of education through tax dollars, the donations it raises play a pivotal role in fostering the creativity of our teachers, engaging the interest of our students, and sustaining the tradition of excellence that has characterized the Belmont Public Schools.
