The Spirit of Giving

combined logo The Community Foundation has a great deal for you! To help make your donation dollars count even more, the CF4CC (fka BACF) has pledged $20,000 in matching funds for the endowment funds held at the CF4CC. The Foundation will match on a 1:1 basis every donation, up to $20,000.  If the money raised exceeds $20,000, the money will be divided proportionally among the different agencies. This means that for every dollar you donate, your chosen organization will receive two dollars!  

On December 4, 2013, the foundation will help you stretch your donation for your favorite organization. Donations may be dropped off at the Community Foundation office, 254 E. Mansfield St., or at the Crestline Public Library, 324 N. Thoman St., from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Checks should be made payable to the CF4CC, with the name of the agency written on the memo line. Contributions can be given in the following manner:

1) Donations may be sent to the agency of your choice, where they will be delivered to the foundation on December 4th. 2) Donations may be made online on December 4th through the foundation web-site, or 3) donations may mailed directly to the foundation office, as long as they are postmarked by December 4th.
