The Foundation for FCPS is once again taking part in Do More 24, a 24 hour fundraising event for local non-profits, hosted by the United Way of the National Capital Area. This year’s Do More 24 event will run from Midnight to Midnight on Thursday, June 8.
All funds raised through the 2017 Do More 24 event will benefit our Kids in Need Fund, created to assist the over 52,000 FCPS students living in poverty. The fund provides school supplies, coats, clothing, shoes, grocery gift cards, laptops and computers and other necessary items that allow students to be successful in school.

Program News: Cyber Patriot
The Foundation for FCPS raises funds to assist the school system in achieving some of its strategic initiatives. We are pleased to have funded, with a special grant from the Community Foundation, new Cyber Patriot clubs in 7 middle schools in 2016-17, with 4 more schools slated to come on board in 2017-18. These clubs have made us proud, and have now competed in three Cyber Patriot competition rounds with exceptional results. We will be seeking additional funding and corporate support going forward, with mentors and team coaches.
