What an easy way to help FBFN Foundation generate funds to help deserving Fort Bend County students go to college.

A Letter to Potential DonorsDear Friends and Neighbors, 

Fort Bend Friends and Neighbors (FBFN) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the education of Fort Bed County students through our scholarship program. In May the Foundation awarded scholarships to ten students who will attend college within Fort Bend County. Since 2005, 112 recipients have received a total of $230,500 in scholarships. Many of our winners are the first in their families to attend college. Their gratitude and record of academic success are indicative of the quality of our program. 

The Foundation relies on the support of generous donors like you. Although our members contribute more than half of the funding we need to provide ten scholarships each year, we can't do it alone. Friends and businesses are needed to help us continue to help deserving students. 

Our major fundraiser is a luncheon with a silent auction and cafe each year. We ask that you kindly consider supporting our event. There are four ways you can help us raise scholarship funds: 

  • Donate one or more gift cards or gift certificates from your own business; 
  • Donate one or more gift cards or certificates from restaurants and local businesses you frequent; 
  • Donate a complete gift basket of a single high-value item (e.g., signed professional sports jersey); or 
  • Donate cash directly to the FBFN Foundation. 

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in the event program. Donor forms can be found at this link: 

If you would like further information, please contact either Carole Kanusky ([email protected]) or Sue Tanzberger ([email protected]). They will be happy to assist you. 

Thank you for considering our request, and for your passion in advancing the education of students in Fort Bend County.
