Among the recipients of FCP grants was a nonprofit that works to introduce Bucks County youths to the discipline and precision of golf.

Foundations Community Partnership (FCP) celebrated its 15th anniversary with an Apr. 12 “Partnership in Youth Services” luncheon in Doylestown. The event celebrated the organization’s decade-and-a-half of success in promoting behavioral health among children, inspiring youth, and creating partnerships to enhance the local quality of life.
