Fresno Coin Gallery donates $75,655 to Public Education
During their third annual Gold Buying Event held last month, the Fresno Coin Gallery purchased gold from their clients and with each sale contributed to a donation of $75,655.70 to The Foundation @ FCOE. Clients were able to designate the area in which they wanted to support students: Academics, Agriculture, Arts, Athletics, or Area of Greatest Need.
Remarkably, the combined total of the last three events has yielded over $200,000! According to Larry Powell, Superintendent of Schools, “This community fundraiser effectively engages our community in making a real difference in Fresno County schools. We are deeply appreciative.”
Mayor Ashley Swearingen recognized The Fresno Coin Gallery for their generosity at City Hall last month. As education continues to face enormous fiscal challenges, it is gratifying to see community leaders, business partners and citizens stepping up to assist educators with their ambitious mission – ensuring that all students receive a quality education and the opportunity to achieve their academic potential.
