Bucyrus Education Foundation can benefit from Match Day
Posted on 11/30/2015
The Community Foundation for Crawford County will be sponsoring a Match Day this year, and the Bucyrus Education Foundation has the opportunity to benefit. This will be a daylong event held Tuesday, Dec. 1.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for our Education Foundation to benefit from not only the generosity of our donors, but also the generosity of the Community Foundation for Crawford County,” Education Foundation President Cindy Wetterau said. “We hope all those interested in helping Bucyrus City Schools become the ‘District of Choice’ will make a contribution to the Foundation during Match Day.”

Throughout the course of a school year, the Education Foundation awards Mini-Grants to teachers and administrators. These Mini-Grants are used to purchase materials that will enhance the classroom experience of students in the Bucyrus City Schools.

“Many of our teachers utilize the Mini-Grants to purchase equipment, books and other supplies needed to deliver a quality education to the students of our district,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “We hope that the Redmen supporters will come out in force to help the Education Foundation continue providing the dollars needed for our teachers and students.”

Match Day contributions will be accepted at The Community Foundation for Crawford County office, 254 E. Mansfield St., on Tuesday, December 1 or you can give your donations to any BEF committee member. For cash donations, we ask that you submit a list of contributors and the amounts for each contribution. Please ensure that donations by check are made payable to The Community Foundation for Crawford County with the name of the school in the memo line. If donations are mailed, they need to be postmarked by December 1. Donations may also be made on-line on Dec. 1 through their web site, https://tcf4cc.givecorps.com.
