Needham High School (NHS) Friends of Music (FOM) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization committed to promoting performing arts at Needham High School.
A booster club for performing arts, the FOM mission is to support and enrich in-class and extracurricular music and theater programs while championing the success of the students those activities benefit. We provide scholarships to graduating seniors who have participated in the Needham High School performing arts. And, we strive to foster an engaged community of families, educators and students who share an interest in enhancing the vitality and excellence of performing arts offerings at Needham High School.
Directed and managed by a volunteer board, FOM achieves its mission in three main ways:
Raising money through our fall annual appeal and fundraising concerts such as Winterfest and A Cappella Go
Providing volunteer and monetary support to faculty, students, programs and events — including awarding annual college scholarships and monetary gifts to graduating seniors
Building a welcoming, engaged community of performing arts advocates at our general meetings and volunteer social receptions
