#CrawfordForGood Final Results
From July 26-27, The Community Foundation for Crawford County held #CrawfordForGood, a two-day online fundraising event meant to assist any local nonprofits who chose to participate.
The Foundation provided the fundraising platform, and any nonprofit could register and use the site at no cost to them. In addition, the Foundation matched donations raised online during the event on a pro-rated basis from a pool of $15,000 being offered by the combined generosity of the Board of Trustees, Park National Bank, Wurm’s Woodworking Company, and an anonymous donor.
“18 Crawford County nonprofits raised funds during #CrawfordForGood,” said Lisa Workman, Foundation President. “Because we had fewer organizations participating this year, the matching pool went a lot further. In fact, we were able to add $1.45 to every dollar raised, with a total of over $25,700 going directly to our fellow nonprofits for their ‘for good’ missions.”
Leading the charge was Rescued Rollers, who raised $4,432. Rescued Rollers has a mission of saving special-needs dogs so that they can be mobilized rather than euthanized. They are based in Galion.
