North Crawford Excellence in Education Fund

North Crawford Community Education Foundation

Get To Know Us

The North Crawford Excellence in Education Fund and the North Crawford Scholarship Fund serve as vehicles to solicit, receive, coordinate and distribute charitable funds.

The Advisory Board, which is independent of the school board and school administration, works to grow core endowment funds while distributing 1) earnings to worthy, school-related projects, and 2) scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education.

These philanthropic dollars allow teachers to be more innovative, students to excel in areas not typically funded by tax dollars, and the community to benefit through better prepared citizens.

We invite you to make a difference in the life of a child. Your contribution benefits the North Crawford School District to improve the quality of life in and for the entire school community. Your gift to the North Crawford Excellence in Education Fund and/or the North Crawford Scholarship Fund is a lasting and meaningful remembrance.

Your gift can:

  • Honor the memory of a loved one;
  • Recognize a favorite teacher or other influential person in your life;
  • Celebrate a class reunion (you can even consider a joint class gift);
  • Mark a special occasion such as a retirement, anniversary, birthday, promotion; and/or
  • Create a legacy to celebrate any event in your life or the life of your family
