FCA seeks your input!

FCA is considering creating a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to be a vehicle for Fairlington residents to contribute to help meet the needs of residents in the general Fairlington area (including Abingdon Elementary families and Park Shirlington residents).  Although the COVID impacts are the immediate impetus for this, the organization would have the ability to respond in a specific and targeted ways to address neighbor and neighborhood needs in future years, such as storms or natural disasters, fires, government shutdowns, and major emergencies.

The Fairlington non-profit would not seek to supplant other charitable organizations serving the area.  Rather, it would partner with other organizations, including county offices, that are seeking to address these needs and thus hope to attract further resources to our area.  The non-profit would be volunteer led and exist primarily on contributions from neighbors in Fairlington. We need your input--would an organization based in Fairlington to address needs in and near Fairlington be useful?
