The Chester A. Arthur Schoolyard is undergoing a transformation and this is your opportunity to be a part of its success! 
With the support of our institutional partners and community members like you, FoCA has worked to convert what was once a barren asphalt lot into an outdoor, interactive educational oasis for Arthur students and a sustainable, green space for our community. Construction on the Arthur Schoolyard is underway and as we gear up for a Fall 2016 opening, we are reaching out now to let you know that there is still time to support this remarkable project!   

Donate to add your name to the many who have made this dream possible and FoCA will thank you by etching a message of your choice in a stone paver to be laid in a dedicated plaza in the Arthur Schoolyard near 21st and Catharine Streets.  Perhaps you would like to honor a Chester Arthur student, a friend or a family member, or maybe join together with neighbors to make a gift on behalf of your block?    

For your donation of $150, FoCA will etch a 6" x 6" paver with your name or a message of your choosing.  For a donation of $400 or more, FoCA will inscribe your name or custom message into a 12" x 12" paver.  Don't miss this opportunity to make your mark and show your love for Chester Arthur and our neighborhood! 

To donate, please visit, select your paver and provide your custom message.  All donations must be made by September 1.  We thank you for your support, and we look forward to enjoying the Arthur Schoolyard with you!
