The Fairport Foundation has been incorporated to provide a charitable structure that will enhance the ability of existing community organizations to obtain funds necessary to implement programs, execute plans and sustain operations vital to the social, environmental, cultural and, ultimately, the economic well-being of the community.
JA of Central Upstate New York's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential.

Learning Links of Fairport was created after Fairport United Methodist Church (FUMC), through Catholic Family Services, sponsored one refugee family from Kenya who emigrated to the U.S. under the approval of President George W. Bush.
The majority of Learning Links of Fairport students live in The Pines of Perinton and come from families of diverse cultures and religious backgrounds from around the world, thus giving it the nickname, “The Little United Nations of Perinton.” Many kids in our program are the fastest adapting English speakers in their families and act as translators for their parents.
Learning Links is approved as a tutoring program by the Fairport Central School District. Partners in Community Development, a local non-profit organization coordinates the KidsCare building and has allowed us to use their facilities on The Pines campus. Although the program is non-denominational, we thank God for all our blessings and are supported by community members, area churches: FUMC, Church of the Resurrection, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Mt. Rise, Church of the Assumption, and more. Fairport Rotary and Fairport Area Lion's Club also support Learning Links of Fairport. Our community partner is Fairport Foundation, a 501 (c)3 entity, making your donations tax-deductible.
