The Spirit of Giving
The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation has officially changed its name to The Community Foundation for Crawford County, or CF4CC. A new sign was unveiled at the Annual Meeting on Monday, September 23rd.
The Community Foundation for Crawford County is proud to introduce the 2014 Scholarship winners for the following scholarships:
The Community Foundation for Crawford County and the Crawford County Teen Institute program have partnered to announce the availability of a $1,000 grant available to the non profit agencies, schools, and municipalities in Crawford County.
The Community Foundation for Crawford County (formerly known as The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation) was founded in 1984 as a public charity. The Foundation, which serves the non-profit community of Crawford County, was started with a matching grant from the Timken Foundation.
Our own President, Janet Pry, was named "Citizen of the Year" at the Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner on Tuesday, October 29.
We had a wonderfully successful Match Day this year! A grand total of $47,272.20 was donated by the community for endowment funds held at the Community Foundation for Crawford County. The CF4CC (fka BACF) has been hosting Match Day fund raising events since 2009. This is the first time in the history of the Foundation Match Days that the monetary goal was exceeded. The Foundation had challenged its organizations to raise funds towards their endowments and agreed to match up to $20,000. The citizens of Crawford County accepted that challenge and well exceeded the goal set by the CF4CC.
The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation has changed its name, but not its commitment to Crawford County! Our new name is the Community Foundation for Crawford County. We feel this new name better reflects our mission in the community--providing financial support to ALL areas of Crawford County.
The Community Foundation has a great deal for you! To help make your donation dollars count even more, the CF4CC (fka BACF) has pledged $20,000 in matching funds for the endowment funds held at the CF4CC. The Foundation will match on a 1:1 basis every donation, up to $20,000. If the money raised exceeds $20,000, the money will be divided proportionally among the different agencies. This means that for every dollar you donate, your chosen organization will receive two dollars!
