The Community Foundation for Crawford County has again joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.)
We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for The Community Foundation for Crawford County, you will help us grow our agency, school, and scholarship funds and make it possible to give even more grants and scholarships to well deserving local non-profit organizations and students right here in Crawford County.

Invite your friends to donate. Not only will you help them feel good about doing good, but they will get more BANG for their buck! EVERY DONATION ON #GIVING2SDAY GENERATES AN ADDITIONAL DONATION FROM THE FOUNDATION FOR THE FUND(S) OF THE DONOR'S CHOICE. The Foundation's board of trustees agreed to set aside $25,000 to distribute to our participating funds on a pro-rated basis. Donations made ONLINE from NOW THROUGH NOVEMBER 28, 2017 are eligible for this additional donation.
You can't make a donation online? No problem! You can mail a check to The Community Foundation for Crawford County at 254 E. Mansfield Street, Bucyrus, OH 44820. Just write the name of the fund you want your gift to support in the Note/Memo line of your check.

But wait - there's more! Thanks to a $1,500 gift from OneIT, an additional $500 will be added to the top earning fund in each of these three categories: agency funds, school funds, and scholarship funds. Raise the most money for your favorite fund, and your fund will take the prize!
