The Fund Development Community Mission
Building community by investing in community.
Fund Development Community (FDComm) is a community fundraising organization. Our primary goal is to raise funds to support programs in the Wynne community. FDComm provides funding to programs for education, housing, health, and small business development.
Striving to Improve
FDComm provides services that address the health concerns of the community. To help fight many of the health problems in our community, we promote a healthy diet and sponsor programs that promote whole foods, exercise, and clean living. We provide free health screens and workshops promoting healthy lifestyles.
One of our primary goals is to provide support to our young people in the community. We award grants for tutoring programs. FDComm offers scholarships to students attending trade school and college. We also fund educational field trips to major cities like Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
The community has experienced an increase in vacant homes and empty lots. These empty lots and vacant homes line many of the streets in the community and it will take a substantial investment to restore many of these properties. FDComm works to restore many of these properties by purchasing vacant lots and abandoned homes. We also award grants to homeowners and renters to pay for repairs to their property and homes.
FDComm supports business in the community. Business owners can apply for business grants from FDComm. We support local businesses by assisting small businesses in their growth and development and providing seminars and workshops to educate the community about business and financial literacy.
