Mission Moment Scholarship Fund
Helping Local Youth to Succeed in the Pursuance of their Educational Goals
For over 35 years, FCA has provided more than 1500 scholarships worth over $2 million to Long Island's young students in need. The Fund helps support the aspirations of at-risk youth who wish to pursue higher education despite years of struggle with homelessness, foster care or other obstacles.
Scholarship Fund Reception
Each year, a special reception is held to recognize the extraordinary achievements of scholarship winners, and the dedicated staff and donors who contribute to the program.
One of the unique facets of the reception is the interaction between donors and scholarship recipients, who sit together and share in the event’s festivities. This event offers students a rare opportunity to mingle with professionals who may be able to guide them in their future careers.
