Dear Business and Community Members

We know that the first few years of a child’s life are critically important in determining the trajectory of their development. These years represent a key window of opportunity to shape academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine success in school and in life. Early childhood education is expensive but vital. Since it was founded in 1977, thousands of local children have benefited from Fauntleroy Children’s Center’s (FCC) early childhood care and education programs. This would not be possible without support from businesses and community members like you!

This year FCC is preparing for its 34th Annual Auction and it will once again be a virtual event to ensure the safety of our community and families. With this year’s theme “I’m Still Standin’!” we are asking you to reach into your hearts and help us raise $50,000 to support the amazing work FCC does for children. Every dollar raised will go towards celebrating teacher accomplishments, as well as tuition assistance for families in need and other critical projects like technology and play structure upgrades. The COVID-19 crisis has tested us all and our dedicated group of educators have gone above and beyond in a global health crisis, adopting stringent cleaning protocols, and adapting to a new virtual world to keep the doors open so our children continue to learn, play and grow. 

We would sincerely appreciate your support through donating a product, gift certificate, service, or by making a direct financial contribution in support of FCC. Every donation gets us closer to our goal!
