The Exchange Club, a dedicated volunteer service organization, has been a critical pillar of support for the Fontana community, organizing various events and programs to enrich the lives of local youth.

 Brock Champion, the president of the Exchange Club of Fontana, stated, “This annual fundraiser, which started in 1953, is the primary source of funding for this leading service organization.  We have been dedicated to enriching the well-being of youth in the Fontana area. All sponsorship funds are tax-deductible donations.  We always need business and community support to help us maintain this tradition.” 

The funds raised from the festival contribute to scholarships for seven high schools in the Fontana Unified School District, as well as support for youth sports and activities. The Fontana Days Festival and Parade are an integral part of Fontana’s civic pride, bringing the community together annually. The Exchange Club and the City of Fontana volunteers are essential contributors to the city’s vibrant and enjoyable atmosphere, and their dedication is truly appreciated.
