About Us

EBS AFP is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The objectives of the AFP are to furnish students with an enhanced education in academics and citizenship through enrichment programs and programs supporting basic needs, by means of personal participation and financial contributions. The foundation also informs the members concerning all aspects of the AFP programs of the School.


All parents of EBS students are welcome members of the AFP which has no minimum mandatory contribution level.
The funds collected by the AFP stay right here at EBS and all donations are tax deducible.  Based on our budget, the AFP will spend roughly $250 on every student at EBS.  All students are included in the AFP funded enrichment programs.
Please join us at our monthly meetings held the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in the MPR.
