Program & Schoolwide Grants

The FBHS Foundation provides funding to enhance the FBHS experience. We call this the Pirate Advantage. This private funding helps supplement federal, state, and local funds and encompasses program and school-wide grants to that fund creative curriculum, professional training, teacher collaboration, and special projects, like the newly created College and Career Center. All funding must directly impact or enhance academic excellence. This funding comes from our community through events, such as Trivia Night and the Foundation Feast, corporate sponsorships, and generous private donations.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
