Friends Of BF

The mission of Friends of BF is to raise funds to enhance the educational experience of all students at Benjamin Franklin Middle School. The HSA and the Friends of BF chairpeople work with Principal Wisniewski to identify worthy expenditures that are not funded through other channels in the district school system.
In past years, your generous Friends of BF contributions have allowed our students to enjoy upgraded STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) classrooms; a special Makers’ Space at BF; STEM Day programs; and BF Exploratories enrichment classes. We have also contributed to the renovation of the BFBN (BF Broadcast News) studio space and the "Zen Den," a lounge-like space for students and teachers.
For 2023-2024, our funds will help bring character-building and social/emotional learning
assemblies to the students of BF.  


The average Friends of BF donation was approximately $100, but any donation amount is most needed and greatly appreciated. Please click here to make a donation on the Friends of BF Paypal page. If you prefer to pay by check, please make payable to BFMS HSA and place it in the HSA mailbox in the main office.

We encourage you to check with your employer to see if there is a matching contribution. Your donation is tax deductible as BFMS is a 501(c)(3) organization.

If you have any questions or would like to help with our fundraising efforts, please feel free to contact Claudia Fortunato or Anna Salerno.
