Friends of Carthay Center Fundraising Projects

Friends of Carthay Center (FCC) is a 501c3 non profit booster club working to financially assist, support and empower Carthay Center Elementary School. FCC volunteers strive to provide superior educational opportunities for all of Carthay Center�s children through fundraising activities, events, and local business partnerships that foster educational excellence, parental involvement and community pride.

  • Realtors Sponsor Carthay
    Realtors enrolling in the FCC Realtor Program join with a $1,000 donation and a two year commitment. They agree to contribute $1,000 for every sale or purchase of property within the school boundaries. In addition, they reward the school with $1,000 donations for any successful FCC referrals anywhere in the city. We thank our Realtor Sponsors with a listing on our website, informative materials about our efforts and the school, FCC �Proud Sponsor� Yard Signs to accompany their �For Sale� signs and other tokens of our appreciation. To learn more about our Realtor Sponsor Program, please contact Michaela Catlin at [email protected].
