Something that has stayed the same is the mission of the foundation--to serve the people of Crawford County, whether they live in Bucyrus, Crestline, Galion, New Washington, or any of the other communities within the Crawford County area.

The fact that we are now have a permanent building conveniently located increases our visibility within the community and enables us to publicize the purpose of the Foundation and encourage donations from individuals and organizations to support their field of interest. Janet Pry, the President of the Foundation, says, "There is not a day that goes by without people coming to the office, whether it is to discuss setting up a scholarship or Fund, or to just ask about the Foundation itself."

What started out as a small foundation with a grant base of just $400,000 has grown to over a $12 million dollar endeavor.  The CF4CC looks forward to serving the Crawford County community for generations to come.
