Craig Foster Wins SMMUSD School Board Seat

Dear Friend,

AMPS is thrilled and proud of Craig Foster, President of AMPS, for winning a seat on the SMMUSD Board of Education.

This has been one of the main goals of AMPS, to elect an intelligent leader who cares about all the children of our district, elected to school board. Malibu finally has a voice! 

Craig is known for advocating separation and has received the third highest number of votes in the recent election. This is a reflection of the change in attitude and openness for separation in Santa Monica. He will be a powerful voice for Malibu and it is another monumental step toward Malibu having its own locally-controlled independent school district.  

Now that Craig has been elected, it's critical that we have the funds to take the next steps toward separation.  

We have a $75,000 gift for matching funds and we need to match it NOW.  

These monies will be used to complete Phase 2 of our research and to pay the necessary legal fees for separation.  You can share in the AMPS mission by making a gift to AMPS for our work and by encouraging others to address this vital issue.

We need your financial support to continue our mission and become the Malibu Unified School District. 

We have to reach a goal for a matching gift of $75,000! Please give now!


If you have any suggestions or ideas for further fundraising efforts please contact me at my email -[email protected] or call me on my cell (520) 954-4642.

Thank you for your continuing support!
