Your Foundation for the Future

The Vision 

Bridging philanthropy with causes that improve Crawford County's quality of life.

The Mission 

As a catalyst, the foundation works to enhance the quality of life for all residents of Crawford County by:

  • Offering a flexible vehicle that assures donors' charitable interests and goals are realized.
  • Providing support (financial, expert/technical assistance) in response to emerging community needs.
  • Partnering with community organizations and collaboratives in support of promising innovations.

The Community Foundation for Crawford County is a permanent, tax-exempt, public charitable foundation established to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Crawford County. Started with the help of The Timken Foundation in 1984, it is a vehicle by which individuals, group and corporations may channel contributions to the community.  The CF4CC works diligently to fulfill our mission of improving life in the Crawford County community by:

Awarding grants to charitable organizations, schools and municipalities within our designated geographic area.  These grants will provide help in areas of education, health and human services, youth and recreational activities, economic development, environmental improvements, the arts, cultural and civic programs and other valuable community programs.

Helping donors decide the best and most effective way to meet their charitable wishes.

Providing leadership in helping the community to meet its ongoing and demanding community needs.

Managing our investments to ensure the continuation and growth of the Community Foundation for Crawford County's asset base.  With the help of multiple professional investment advisors, the CF4CC is able to offer a safe method for both protecting and growing our assets.
