For the 4th year, The Community Foundation for Crawford County held their annual fundraiser, #Giving2sday, on the global day of giving that occurred this year on November 28.
“We are thrilled that this year’s event exceeded last year’s,” explained Lisa Workman, the Foundation’s President. “Donors like knowing that their gift inspired a second one, as our Board set aside $35,000 to distribute to our participating funds on a pro-rated basis. We are grateful to live in such a generous community!” The final tally of $120,500 which donors raised combined with the Foundation Board’s commitment means that $155,500 is being distributed to good causes in Crawford County.
“This was a record fundraiser for us,” exclaimed Justin McMullen, Foundation Board member and Chair of their Development Committee. “Thanks to a gift to the Foundation from OneIT, an additional $500 was added to the top earning fund in one of each of three categories: agency funds, scholarship funds and school funds. Those winners are the Marian E. and Norman H. Maynard Bucyrus Public Library Fund, the Pry Scholarship Fund, and the Galion Community Education Foundation Fund.”
Next year’s #Giving2sday will be held on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
