The CMHS Foundation

The CMHS Foundation (formerly known as the Maecenas Society)

In the 2020-2021 school year, the organization’s original name of the Maecenas Society was officially changed to the CMHS Foundation.  The 501(c)(3) group was formed in 1995 by a group of parents who wanted to provide significant financial support to Caddo Magnet High School in its continuing quest for excellence in education. The CMHS Foundation exists for the sole purpose of funding the much needed “big ticket” item that are not provided by the Caddo Parish School Board and that may be beyond the reach of other fund-raising efforts.

Starting in the 2014-15 school year, the CMHS Foundation is focusing on a comprehensive technology plan for the entire school, with the goal of initially outfitting all the core classes so all students will be impacted immediately. The goal is for all classrooms to have the best available educational technology for our students and teachers to utilize, that basic equipment being a SmartTV, a class set of chromebooks, and laptop computer(s). 80% of all funds collected will be dedicated to outfitting our classrooms with the described equipment, and we will continue until all classrooms are equipped. The remaining 20% of funds will be used for teacher request for other classroom needs.

Membership in the Foundation is open to anyone – parents, grandparents, alumnae and friends. Contributions are tax deductible. To join, simply fill out this MAECENAS SOCIETY-Donor form.
