As 2017 wound down to a close, our supporters were answering our call to provide sustaining support. We are thrilled to have met our target in raising $20,000 during this year’s annual appeal. These funds support teacher grants and professional development, student programming, and enable FoCA to continue to grow.
SWCC 5k RUN
In the Fall of 2017, FoCA worked together with Stanton Community Partners to organize the 9th annual SWCC 5k. Between 5k racers, Spooky Sprinters, volunteers, and friends and family who cheered from the fan zone - more than 500 people turned out for the event.
We would like to acknowledge the Lenfest Foundation for their support of Arthur’s middle years after-school programming, Bloktoberfest for their support of FoCA’s community events, and the Southwest Center City 5k and Philadelphia Activities Fund for their support of healthy, active programming like yoga and Dancing Classrooms.
