Thanks to our community's generous nature, the community was able to raise over $212,800 during #Giving2sday. When combined with the $35,000 pro-rated matching funds ($25,000 from the Foundation's Board of Trustees, $2,500 each from E-Z-GO: a Textron Company and The Mason Companies, $750 from Ehrhart's Party Store, $250 from Peacock Water, and $4,000 from the Hord Family Donor Advised Fund of TCF4CC) and our six $500 contest prizes (sponsored by Mizick Miller & Company, Inc. and FCBank), the grand total for #Giving2sday 2023 was over $250,800.00! This means that for every dollar you donated, your chosen fund received a little more than $0.16 per dollar.
The top earning funds and winners of the MizickMiller 500 Contest . . . Bucyrus Kiwanis Fund (agency/designated funds), the Wynford FFA Rising Sun Scholarship Fund (scholarship funds), and the Galion Community Education Foundation Fund (school funds). Congratulations to our winners - each of your funds will receive an additional gift of $500 thanks to our sponsor, Mizick Miller & Company, Inc. of Bucyrus!
Our second contest, FCBank Power Hour sponsored by FCBank of Bucyrus, took place on #Giving2sday between the hours of 6pm and 7pm. Every donation made ONLINE during that time period entered the donor’s name into a random drawing to win the right to choose a fund to receive an additional $500 gift. Those winners and the funds that were awarded were Beth Anne Jarvis (Crawford Impact Fund), Caleb Miller (Bucyrus Kiwanis Fund) and Linda Cooperider (Bucyrus Backpack Program Fund).
