Falmouth Education Foundation grew out of conversations in the summer of 2004 among residents whose children attended the Falmouth Public Schools. These FEF founders and designers wanted to provide our educators the knowledge, training, and materials necessary to remain at the forefront of educational excellence.

The Falmouth Education Foundation respects and values diverse life experiences and heritages and is committed to ensuring that all voices are valued and heard. All board members, volunteers and staff, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, class, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability, are welcome, valued and respected.
FEF is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in our community and to building an inclusive organization. We strive to:
