The Friends of Elysian Charter School is a 501c3
organization with the mission of raising funds that
will benefit Elysian Charter School of Hoboken.
As one of the first charter schools in New Jersey, Elysian Charter School of Hoboken (K-8) opened its doors in 1997. Recognized by then Governor Christine Todd Whitman in her 2001 State of the State Address, Elysian has been a pioneer in the charter school movement for more than 15 years.
However, as a charter school, Elysian is seriously under-funded, receiving far less money and resources compared to the other public schools in the state.
We do more with less, but with your help we can do even more. The money we raise is put towards
- Facilities Improvements and Upgrades
- School Trips, Athletics and Cultural Events
- Library Resources
- Arts and Sciences Resources
