Supporting Education in Bucyrus & Crawford County
Buckeye Central, Bucyrus, Colonel Crawford, Crestline, Galion and Wynford
The CF4CC wishes to provide a long-term, stable source of funding for the area schools. These funds are not intended to substitute the normal, tax-based, operating funds but rather promote non-required school programs, which could be athletics, fine and performing arts, academics, and other extracurricular activities as determined by the individual school systems. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination and ideas of the teachers, students and administration of each school committee.
From where does the money come?
Contributions to the Endowment Fund will never be spent. Only the income generated by donations will be available for spending. This will result in the Endowment growing year after year as contributions accumulate.
A designated fund for Buckeye Central, Bucyrus, Colonel Crawford, Crestline and Wynford schools has been established under the governance of the CF4CC and is thereby subject to the Foundation Governing Rules. The Galion Schools established its own fund at the CF4CC in 2014. Each school system has their own autonomous Endowment Committee with their own Codes of Regulations. These committees will help in fund-raising and make the award allocations yearly based on the income received. You may contact the individual school committee by clicking on one of the school name links or the CF4CC office for more information.
Ways of giving!
Contributions to a specific School Endowment may be made in many ways, the most common of which is an outright gift. Many individuals, due to their particular circumstances, choose to make donations via other gifts:
- Memorial: Cash or assets in memory of a loved one, friend or educator. A named fund can even be established to honor a person or his/her life’s passions.
- Deferred: Bequests, gift annuities, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts, or other such means of gifting.
- Incremental: Gifts made in planned stages over a specific period of time.
Any of these gifts may be made with cash, stocks, IRA contributions, or bequests.
