Membership & Support

We have a family of more than 15,000 Franklin Alumni, which include over 700 paying members! We are always looking to build and expand our alumni base, so we can help you reconnect with friends, and support the current students who carry on our legacy.

Your involvement helps us give back to Franklin’s students and teachers through grants for scholarships, art, band, drama, dance, clubs, sports, mascots, shop, metalwork, ceramics, books, journalism, campus groundskeeping, and even a helping hand for our students without a consistent place to call home.

Franklin High School Alumni Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your membership helps fund the FHS Teacher/Student Wish Fund*, the FHSAA General Fund**, and the PTSA.
