An online donation to Palms is the most effective way to support your school, and one of the easiest too!
Palms students hold fundraisers too, especially their annual Magazine Drive.
Friends of Palms is a 501c3 Non-Profit.
For our Fundraising Information Card see the Friends of Palms page.
Friends of Palms provides many services to Palms Middle School. In turn, Friend of Palms needs your support.
In addition to planned events and activities, some for fun and some to raise money for our school, Friends of Palms runs ongoing fundraising programs that make it easy for you to participate.

The Magazine Drive is held every year in October. You can help Palms by buying magazines and holiday items for yourself and as gifts for others.
