North Crawford Excellence in Education Fund

crawford-county-cef-logo

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.
