About Our Auction

North Fort Myers Academy Arts Foundation is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the Arts. We are a public school located in North Fort Myers, serving kindergarten through 8th grade students from Cape Coral, Pine Island, and the Fort Myers area.

The programs and items supported and purchased through the Arts Foundation in the past few years include student scholarships, guest artists, musical instruments, steel drum set, performance/travel trailer, a new dance floor, a stage backdrop, school mural and academic arts enrichment grants.

Future programs for the arts and academic enrichment depend upon our annual auction fundraiser.

As we approach the end of the school year, we will showcase all of our students through our Arts Alive week. We are seeking your support with a donation for our end of the year silent auction. This event will be held in May 2019 at North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts. Your generosity is greatly appreciated by the community and the students we serve.

About North Fort Myers Academy Arts Foundation, Inc.

The North Fort Myers Academy Arts Foundation is a 501c-3 non-profit organization whose purpose is to increase and fund the aspirations and artistic development of NFMAA students and faculty. We work to provide opportunities for artistic growth, exploration, and increase community awareness of the vitality of the arts program at NFMAA.

NFMAA is a Kindergarten through 8th grade public school that also offers, dance, drama/musical theater, visual arts, graphic arts, band: steel drums, jazz band, wind ensemble, beginning, intermediate, advanced, chorus, orchestra: beginning, intermediate, advanced, quartet and violin, costume design and culinary! Despite being able to offer all these arts courses to our 1100 students, our school does not receive any additional funding that any other public school would get through the District. Our Arts Foundation was founded to step into this gap and help provide funds to keep these programs and students flourishing. Through our sponsors and yearly fundraisers we are able to provide small things like music for our bands and orchestra, dresses and pants/shirts for chorus, instruments for students.... and then larger purchases like helping pay for a much needed upgraded sound system for our theater, new steel drums, a curtain for a dance classroom and flooring for the dance classrooms. We also provide grants to our arts teachers that they can use on bringing in guest artists to work with our students, supplies for projects, sets and costumes for our musical theater programs and much more!

All funds raised through this Silent Auction will go to the 2021-2022 fine arts programs at NFMAA.
