BRINGING TOGETHER SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF CHARACTER EDUCATION
Friends of CharacterPlus (FoCP) was founded in 2005 by Veronica McDonnell to increase awareness of the CharacterPlus program in the schools where it was being utilized and also to the community at large. The Friends’ mission is to help CharacterPlus expand its role in the community, specifically with parents of school-aged children and to support all functions of the CharacterPlus organization.
Friends of CharacterPlus promotes, sponsors and raises awareness of the critical work undertaken by CharacterPlus through various marketing strategies. The Friends group also provides scholarships for educators to attend CharacterPlus training and for schools to participate in CharacterPlus Way.
Friends of CharacterPlus sponsors the Friends Fall Party held annually in November. Friends of CharacterPlus also holds other special events to raise funds for the organization.
Friends of CharacterPlus is run by a board of trustees made up of a diverse group of community volunteers helmed by the executive committee, which includes the president, vice president, assistant vice president, treasurer, secretary, immediate past president and founder.
