Welcome to the FAN Redmond 2021 Virtual Luncheon!
The annual Redmond FAN Luncheon is our largest local fundraiser of the year, providing resources we need to ensure FAN advocates are able to serve families throughout the Redmond School District.
As the pandemic unfolded, many Redmond families were disproportionately harmed and are now at a disadvantage to recover once the crisis ends. Some parents who were previously just scraping by, paycheck to paycheck, have now lost their steady income. Each day, they are struggling to provide the security they desire for their children. They need someone in their corner.
That’s were FAN comes in. To support our families during this critical time, FAN is working with health and social service providers, businesses, community organizations, and individuals. We help kids stay connected to school with a warm place to live, nourishing food to eat, winter coats, and more. We also help parents find job opportunities, health insurance, childcare support—whatever they need to stay on their feet! Our advocates are coordinating with schools in-person and remotely, giving families one dedicated individual to advocate on their behalf.
Thank you for being a part of this very important work!

Comments & Questions
FAN is such a wonderful asset to our community! Thank you for doing all that you do, and thanks for keeping up the good work through this last year’s pandemic. Organizations like yours are vital to the success of many of our youth!
I became aware of FAN when it was in its infancy in Redmond. FAN advocates build relationships with students in their school and work with the students’ families when a need arises. The goal is to help the family through the need and help them gain skills to manage the next one on their own with a safety net to help them along the way.
FAN will always be my No. 1 nonprofit donation because when I donate to FAN, I know I get a bigger bang for my buck. My dollars are leveraged with other community resources to address specific needs as they arise. FAN is there for families in hard times! Thank you for joining me in supporting them!
Thank you for helping Central Oregon families. Not only does FAN provide food, clothing, and school supplies but they also give hope back to families that are in desperate need. Central Oregon is fortunate to have the Family Access Network!
