About Us

Join the Foundation as we support the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science (MSMS)

In 2008 the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science Foundation (Foundation) reorganized with the passing of HB513, which initiated a Room and Board Fee. Under the direction of the Foundation board, the goal is to grow the Foundation to be able to support not only students affected by the Legislature initiative, but continue to assist the school as needed. By growing the Foundation dollars, the money and support to the school can grow as the school’s budget is reduced. Without the generosity of loyal alumni, parents, and friends MSMS could not be successful in its endeavors.

Join us in supporting MSMS.
