The Foundation of Shallowford Falls (FSF) is a charitable, non-profit, 501c (3) tax-exempt organization dedicated to providing an exceptional learning environment specifically for Shallowford Falls students and is funded through annual memberships, community donations, and fundraising events. Established in 2006, FSF raises money for Shallowford Falls Elementary School to provide programs and resources that are above and beyond those provided by the Cobb County School District. The Foundation has the ability to fund programs, hire teachers and pay teachers’ salaries for programs NOT included in the Cobb County standard curriculum budget. The tax-exempt status from the IRS enables the Foundation to receive employee-matching funds and to apply for educational grant monies. Most schools in East Cobb County have strong foundations that fund programs such as Science, Foreign Language, Drama, Kids Chess, and more. It is imperative that Shallowford Falls students remain competitive with students at other schools in East Cobb whose foundations support outstanding educational programs.
