“This extremely generous donation by Middlesex Savings Bank will allow us to fund even more innovative programs in Franklin Public Schools next year” said Lisa Brady, FEF President. “Fundraising by nonprofit education foundations gets tougher every year, and this donation from Middlesex Savings Bank supports FEF’s financial stability to be a reliable source of funding for innovative educational programs developed by our very talented Franklin educators.”
“Middlesex Savings Bank has great respect for the education foundations in our community,” said Michael McAuliffe, President and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank. “They work hard to support projects and programs that foster learning and creativity. We hope these donations will make their jobs easier this year and are excited to see their existing academic programs flourish or new ones come to life.”
