Dear Friends,

Keeping our special needs community Safe, Happy and Healthy is of utmost importance to FCSN. However, we have reached our service capacity years ago with more than 200 individuals on the waiting list.

We need your help to raise
$350,000 to Expand Our Dream:
  • Renovate the new center
  • Expand program capacity to serve more individuals and families
  • Sustain FCSN quality services
  • Outreach and Empower new families
  • Keep the special needs community safe and healthy 
Thank you so much for your donation last week, allowing us to achieve the $5,000 matching. This inspired more donors to come forward with an even bigger challenge - DOUBLE MATCHING: FCSN will receive $50,000 if we raise $25,000 from 10/19 to 11/5. Please support and help us outreach to as many donors as possible. Together with you, we Have the Power to Expand Our Dream! 

Click here to donate. Donations of $20 or more will receive a complimentary virtual gala ticket for Saturday, 11/6, from 4-6pm.

With Much Gratitude,

Anna Wang
FCSN Vice President

Emcee: Matt Keller

Matt Keller is a familiar face for FCSN. He has been our emcee since the very first FCSN Special Needs Got Talent (now known as Special Needs Talent Showcase) in 2015. He has returned every single year since then as emcee with the exception of one year when he was one of the judges. In 2017, Matt also started emceeing for FCSN Gala as well. His wonderful sense of humor and personality won the audience over and kept them thoroughly entertained. Matt is currently the Media and Public Relations Supervisor at Valley Water. Before that, he was an anchor and reporter for more than 20 years. Matt won two Emmy awards and Edward R. Murrow award. He was most recently a reporter and fill-in anchor for ABC7 New here in the Bay Area. During his time off, Matt enjoys running, spending time with his family and supporting his friends at FCSN.
