Supporting our Students
Fostering intellect, creativity and character, and preparing tomorrow’s leaders to contribute meaningfully to their communities and their world; that’s what F&M has done for 233 years. That’s what is needed now more than ever.
At times like these, it is understandable that each of us will support those things to which we are closest and that are most important to us. We believe our students are worth investing in.
Supporting students and fostering an environment where they can thrive has always been a value central to the F&M community. It’s important now, more than ever, for us to continue investing in the students of today and tomorrow.
