FCL Education Fund
FCLCA’s sister organization, the FCL Education Fund, was created in 1984. The FCL Education Fund supports nonpartisan educational activities that reflect the values of Friends, including research, publications, workshops, and presentations in furtherance of social justice and informed citizen participation in state government. We believe that the people of California should be educated about the issues facing our state and have the tools and information they need to promote positive social change.
FCL Education Fund presents Bring Your Voice - a comprehensive guide to grassroots lobbying and the state legislature
To encourage people to participate in the representative system of government and to help educate them on how to effectively weigh in on state legislation, the FCL Education Fund created a comprehensive guide called Bring Your Voice: FCLCA's Guidebook to Grassroots Lobbying and the California Legislature, available online. For information on receiving hard copies or possible trainings based on the guidebook, call us at (916) 443-3734.
Because the FCL Education Fund is a charity with an educational purpose and mission, contributions in support of the Fund are deductible to the extent provided by Section 501(c)(3) if the U.S. Code of Internal Revenue. Our tax ID number is 68-0062639. Making a gift of appreciated stock may have tax advantages to you - see more here.
