FCS Year in Review: 2022

How do you measure a successful year?

First and foremost, the FCS is a community. We measure success by how we connect people to each other. Across the country, financial marketing, communications and media professionals bring to life our mission of Community, Education and Philanthropy with their membership, sponsorship, and engagement through our in-person and virtual events.

With all our events and activities in 2022, we can proudly state that the FCS has supported 45 children’s charities since 2000, donating $2,860,000.

Because of you, the FCS mission continues to succeed, our community continues to thrive.
