Posted by Amy Vaughn on Thu, Dec 05, 2019

 

For the 6th year, The Community Foundation for Crawford County held their annual fundraiser, #Giving2sday, on the global day of giving that occurred this year on December 3rd.

“This was our best year yet,” exclaimed Jennifer Stirm, Foundation Board member and Chair of their Development Committee. “Donors like knowing that their gift inspired a second one, as our Board set aside $25,000 to distribute to our participating funds on a pro-rated basis. Crawford County may have a small population, but it is large when it comes to generosity!” The preliminary tally of $177,400 which donors raised combined with the Foundation Board’s commitment means that $202,400 is being distributed to good causes in Crawford County.
