Fundraising is a vital component of our mission. Throughout the year, we host several fundraising events. These events not only help to solidify the connection between our students, our school and our community, but they also provide a significant amount of financial support to enhance our school classroom programs and facilities. We are fortunate to serve a generous community who supports the school in various fundraisers:

  • Each February, the Chili Cook-Off is held in downtown Fernandina Beach.  Participants compete for the title of "Best Chili" during this fun-filled, family-friendly event.
  • Other small fundraisers occur from time to time throughout the school year. Fundraisers change based on community interest.


AIMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The school has been fortunate to receive charitable donations from our families and the wider community.

Please call the Business Office to make a charitable donation. Monetary gifts are tax-deductible and receipts will be sent immediately upon receipt of the donation.
