FCPS Honors 2021 - Sponsor this Annual Event

The FCPS Outstanding Employee Awards program celebrates exceptional school-based and non-school-based employees from throughout the district. Each year, 12 amazing employees are recognized at the annual FCPS Honors Gala. While we don't know what form this event will take in 2021, your company can show your support for FCPS employees, all of whom have gone above and beyond in this most unique year.

Find out more about the Honors and view the sponsorship materials on the Foundation's website.

Donate to the Foundation's Programs

The Foundation for FCPS works in partnership with the entire FCPS system and our community to create pathways to long-term success for students. The pandemic has highlighted the gap needs that exist. Your gift will help the Foundation fund these programs and more. 

FCPS Honors and employee recognition programs: the Foundation partners with the Human Resources department to honor outstanding employees, through monthly celebrations around the district and culminating in the gala event in June. 

Teacher Grants: the Foundation will grant funds directly to teachers for projects that support Return to School classroom activities in the 2021-2022 school year.

Kids In Need: the Foundation provides school supplies and gift cards for basic needs to some of the nearly 60,000 students who qualify for free or reduced meals.
