Who We Are

Board of Directors

The Fredericksburg Area Service League, Inc (FASL), was formed in April, 1993, by a group of women interested in promoting volunteerism in the Fredericksburg area. Founding members saw a distinct need for a central clearinghouse of volunteers from the community at large, who were ready to develop and staff new programs. After several meetings, the membership voted to have issues relating to children as its primary focus.

In our 25 year history, we have donated over $700,000 and given thousands of hours in help. With the continued support from volunteers and growing recognition in the community we are able to support a variety of projects and organizations, which directly impact the lives of local children.

Firstly, as a non-profit, volunteer-based organization, strength in numbers is our motto! Each year our membership grows and so, in turn, does our help in the community, both financially and in volunteer hours. Membership is key to the running of FASL and by becoming a member, you can make a bigger impact with both your donations and time! See first hand the children we strive to help and get to know the organizations and programs we support. Know that what we raise in donations and sponsorship goes directly to them.
