Very proud of Foundation for a College Education. As a parent, they supported my family and I to be prepared for college, navigate the complex college application system, supported us financially in college, and reminded us that it takes a village to get into and graduate from college. I cannot attest how supportive this program is. I am so glad to see local companies making an effort to support these great programs and organizations to better our EPA community. Now we know there is more work to be done but this is a start. Let's get more companies to reinvest their money in our local communities. Go FCE!!!

Such amazing news! My husband and I have been supporting FCE for many years because we believe in their mission and work. To see the Facebook is also giving back to their local community is great news. Let's making getting these college dreams a reality buy investing in housing, education, mental health and careers.
