City Honors excellence and continuation of the heritage of Fosdick-Masten Park depend greatly on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends.
From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, contributions to the CH/FMP Foundation help to ensure that all students, regardless of background, have the same opportunities and support the highest quality of education. In addition, the Foundation works to restore and protect our historic National Register school building. There are a number of ways you can contribute:
Listing the CH/FMP Foundation as a United Way Donor Choice' Agency. (No matter where you are in the country, if you participate in the United Way payroll contribution program, you can list the Foundation as your agency of choice for all, or a percentage of, your annual contribution.) Our United Way Donor code is: 5326.
*Listing the CH/FMP Foundation on your State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA) donation form. Our SEFA Donor code is: 57-00391.

We hope you will consider including the CH/FMP Foundation in your will or estate plans to ensure that the school’s heritage of excellence continues in the future. Making a deferred or planned gift to the Foundation, including bequests, life income plans and other options for your estate, can help you increase your income, earn valuable income-tax deductions today and decrease your descendant’s tax liability.
Recurring gifts can help sustain your impact through regular and consistent contributions to CH/FMP.
You can set up your credit card to be charged a certain amount at a frequency of your choosing through PayPal (select the "Make this a monthly donation" checkbox)
Gifts of appreciated securities, annuities, IRAs, stocks and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to the Foundation before they are sold. Changes to federal law over the past few years make it easier than every to roll these types of assets into the Foundation.
Gift Pledges are formal statements of intention to make a gift. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time. Each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax deduction
This approach provides you an opportunity to make a lasting impact. They can be directed towards special programs, extra-curriculars or ongoing capital improvements.
Reunion gifts — made during your reunion year — can help show your appreciation for what our school has meant to you. Memorial gifts can be made in honor of a family member, classmate, teacher or other member of the Fosdick-Masten Park or City Honors community.
Many employers match the contributions made by employees, sometimes on a one-to-one, two-to-one or even three-to-one basis. Every gift truly does matter regardless of amount. Please consider supporting our students and historic school building today.
