Updates from the Foundation for FCPS

Thank you!

It's been a year like no other.

As we mark the one-year anniversary of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools recognizes the generous community members who donated funds to assist students and families in need over the past year. Thanks to you, we were able to provide nearly $1,000,000 to FCPS since March, 2020 for distance learning support across the district! Read more about our work in the Foundation's annual report, available here.  

Now, one year later, as FCPS welcomes students back to in person learning, it is wonderful and exciting to return to a bit of normalcy.
