FANA of Bogota is embarking on an exciting new venture and they have asked us to support them in a substantial way. The old yellow school building behind the orphanage cannot house the number of students FANA educates and the constant need to repair it has created a financial burden. We have been asked to raise the necessary funds to build a new and modern school building in a new location on the grounds at FANA.
While your support for FANA has never wavered and we continually contribute to the daily operations to keep the doors of FANA open, this year we have an opportunity to do something extraordinary. FANA has requested that we raise $500,000 to build the new school. The board of Families of FANA, WNY has voted to begin the funding of this project and we are now reaching out to the larger FANA Family to help raise the rest of the money.
This project is scheduled to break ground early in the new year. The new preschool building will be a beautiful three-story building with nine classrooms (three more classrooms than the old school) giving FANA more capacity to serve children. These extra classrooms will allow for new programming for the children of FANA. This is our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.
This project is a great opportunity for all of the families of FANA. If you would like to talk about the project in greater detail, I am happy to share more specifics and talk about possible donation opportunities. I am reachable via e-mail at Pfuzak@aol.com or cell phone at 716.863.6421.
