Message from the Chairman
The Father Dueñas Memorial School Endowment Foundation was formed to seek ongoing and long-term financial support for Father Dueñas Memorial High School. To help carry this mission forward, a Board of Directors made up of alumni from different graduating years was formed and meet regularly to address policies and other matters that complement the Foundation and the school. The board is comprised of many different talents and skills whose service provide guidance and governance to the Foundation and allows it to carry out its mission.
As Chairman of the Board, I challenge all alumni of FDMS to never forget your years at the school, maintain your connection to the school and to the alumni and embed those same values and brotherhood to your sons who are attending or have attended FDMS.
One way to do this is to contribute financially through the Endowment Foundation to allow students enrolled in FDMS to succeed with their academic endeavors. Many may be in financial need but are excellent academically. Some may even have English as their second language. Therefore, the Foundation is seeking your help. We have in place options such as Family scholarships named after your namesake, corporate donations, planned giving, and other financial contributions are most welcome. We also have other ways such as gift planning and other forms of endowments.
We have many projects planned. In fact, part of our FDMS 2020 Plan is to build a second floor over the quad for labs and classrooms, remodel the quad itself to create a more welcoming area, redo the front facia of the school facing the road to create a unique school identity, build a perimeter fence around the school for security of our students and staff, replace the flooring of the Jungle – much in need of new floor paneling, build a sports field something we can call our own – The Friars Field! and many more. But we need your help. We need your financial support.
All these fall in line with our core objectives: a. Capital Improvement b. Faculty Development c. Scholarships
Contact our office now to explore ways you can give back to FDMS and the community. As a 501(c) non-profit organization, your contributions are tax deductible.
Fortes in fide,
N. Oscar Miyashita, CPA/PFS
