Our Purpose

The Fontbonne Community Connection (FCC) is a women’s giving Circle that believes in the mission of Fontbonne University and supports the University’s efforts to educate students to serve a world in need. The FCC awards funds to faculty, staff and students, to help them achieve goals, dreams and ideas that could not otherwise be met or pursued within the current budget. The campus community benefits directly from the FCC, and its members also reap the satisfaction of making a significant difference in the lives of others.
