We have exciting news to share -- Franklin Community Center is Expanding!!

FCC proudly welcomes you to our newest acquisition

The Michael and Stacie Arpey Family Community Center At FCC

Because of the overwhelming community partnership and support, Franklin is thrilled to announce that we have officially purchased the former MASIE Center building at 95 Washington Street, right across the street from our 10 Franklin location.

The additional building will allow the Center the much-needed space to grow our programs.  Michael and Stacie generously donated $1M to the Center to help facilitate the purchase of the building, ensuring that this opportunity turned into a reality.

The Center is proudly announcing a $3M fundraising Expansion Campaign. We have raised over $2.1M to date and are now turning towards our community for help with the additional funds needed.

The additional space will allow the Center to:

  • Better serve the growing number of individuals, families and children in our community
  • Effectively meet our current and future needs
  • Better identify and address the underlying needs in the community

By contributing to our Expansion Campaign, you will have a direct impact on the growth and ability to better serve our community now and into the future.

If you would like to contribute to the campaign you can CLICK HERE to make an online contribution or send a check to:  Franklin Community Center / 10 Franklin Street / Saratoga Springs / New York / 12866.  *Please Note “Expansion Campaign” with your donation.

If you are unable to give this year, we have pledge commitment forms that allow you to spread out your gift over a period of time.
