Donor Corner: $1,000,000!

With its latest grant award to the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools, the Claude Moore Foundation has surpassed $1,000,000 in contributions since 2015!

The Claude Moore Foundation has worked closely with FCPS and the Foundation to launch and support the Claude Moore Scholars Healthcare Education Program at FCPS. Over 600 students are enrolled in Claude Moore Scholar courses at Falls Church High School Health Sciences Academy, including Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Health Informatics, Introduction to Nursing, Language of Medicine, Medical Billing & Coding, Patient Care Technician, and Pharmacy Technician. FCPS is incredibly proud of this medical pathway program and its focus on some lesser known ways for students to become involved in the medical field. 

Thank you to the Claude Moore Foundation for its steadfast support. 

For more information about the courses available through the Falls Church Health Sciences Academy, please visit the school's website.
