Foundation for FCPS Launches Fund to Cover Student Lunch Balances
The Foundation has launched a fundraising effort to pay off debt accrued by students on their meal accounts. A tally at the end of the 2016-2017 school year showed that students around the district owed FCPS approximately $13,000.
On June 6, the Foundation accepted its first conqtribution to this effort, a $6,000 gift from Viking Capital LLC, a real estate investment company in Washington DC. The company has a commitment to donate 10% of its profits to charitable causes. Elizabeth Murphy, Executive Director of the Foundation, stated “It’s wonderful to work with local community-minded organizations who identify a need and are able to make a real difference right away. The Foundation is committed to raising funds to eliminate these lunch balances, and Viking Capital has made a huge impact here.”
Interested donors can visit the Foundation’s secure portal and designate their contribution to “Erase School Lunch Balance” in the section marked OTHER.
