USA Old Blues (FCH)

The partnership of donors includes those who support Christ’s Hospital via the FCH (Friends of Christ’s Hospital), a registered charity in the United States which expends its funds to support educational programs of the Christ’s Hospital Foundation.  Funds raised by the FCH are not included in the overall Blue Fund total.  The FCH have their own separate target to achieve $250,000 (c. £175,000) to fund another pupil at Christ’s Hospital.

On achieving the first fundraising milestone of $75,000, (c. £52,000) the FCH will be allocated a pupil by the school admissions office, to benefit from the support of the FCH Blue Fund.
