Match Day 2014 is December 2nd, 2014, the 3rd annual National Day of Giving! The Community Foundation for Crawford County is proud to announce that the Board of Directors has approved $30,000 to be divided on a prorated basis among the CF4CC organizations that participate in this year's Match Day challenge.
We had a wonderfully successful Match Day this year! A grand total of $47,272.20 was donated by the community for endowment funds held at the Community Foundation for Crawford County. The CF4CC (fka BACF) has been hosting Match Day fund raising events since 2009. This is the first time in the history of the Foundation Match Days that the monetary goal was exceeded. The Foundation had challenged its organizations to raise funds towards their endowments and agreed to match up to $20,000. The citizens of Crawford County accepted that challenge and well exceeded the goal set by the CF4CC.
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!
The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation board of directors has awarded $20,000 toward a 1:1 match for the benefit of the five school districts in Crawford County - Bucyrus City, Buckeye Central, Colonel Crawford, Crestline, and Wynford Schools. If the money raised exceeds $20,000, the money will be divided proportionally among the five school districts.
