Collect Fantastic Prizes With a Pledge of Your Support

Family & Children’s Services of Waterloo Region Foundation raises funds, awareness and assists FACS in offering programs and initiatives that promote the well-being and safety of children and youth. 

It’s not easy to build a future without a post-secondary education, and this can seem out of reach for youth in foster care.  In addition to the cost of tuition fees and books, there are living expenses that must be paid.  Post-secondary scholarships can give youth a good start at creating a positive path to their future.

Give it your all in the Dirty Dash and give back to children and youth in our community! Get Dirty for Education.  All funds raised at this event are directed to the FACS Foundation Scholarship Fund, so YOU have the ability to make dreams come true!

FACS does excellent work in the community and we’re thrilled to support it!  But that’s not the only reason for you to fundraise…. There are also BIG prizes up for grabs, including hundreds of dollars in gift certificates!
