Our Programs: Cyber Patriot

The Foundation for FCPS is a catalyst for funding to assist the school system in achieving its strategic initiatives. We are pleased to have funded, with a matching 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 introduced middle school students to cyber safety and opened the door to future careers in the field. 

The Foundation is currently seeking additional funding and corporate support for this impactful program. To see ways that your organization can become involved, please visit our website


Resource Fairs

Over 50,000 students in FCPS identify as living below the poverty line. One way the Foundation supports them is through providing school supply kits to them at our back-to-school resource fairs, held at four high schools in August. At the resource fairs, students receive school supplies, meet teachers and principals, get free haircuts, vision and dental screening, plus visit a showcase of local community groups who can assist families in need with language services, food, job training, and much more. This is an effort worth your support - please make your secure contribution through our donation portal, at this link
