West Carrollton Education Foundation

A Foundation for the Future

Founded in 1989, the WCEF is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization. It is administered by a nine-member Board of Trustees who represent various groups within the school community. The mission of the West Carrollton Education Foundation is to raise private funds from community individuals, businesses, and organizations and to distribute these funds as classroom grants for student enrichment.

Annually, the WCEF inducts members of the greater school community into its Distinguished Service Hall of Fame and recognizes outstanding teaching with Dickinson Thetford Guiler Fellowships.

West Carrollton Education Foundation Annual Fundraising Campaign

The West Carrollton Education Foundation was one of the first in the Dayton Area to benefit a public school system. Thanks to our donors’ generosity, the West Carrollton Education Foundation is making a positive difference in the education of West Carrollton’s students. 

Past contributors to the grants have included: The Dickinson T. Guiler Trust, the West Carrollton Education Association, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Heirloom Framing, Elder Beerman/Bon Ton, Appleton Paper, Sanner Funeral Home, Levin Porter Associates, Miami Township Trustees and the West Carrollton Rotary Club.

The West Carrollton Education Foundation and its funds are components of The Dayton Foundation. Leadership for the West Carrollton Education Foundation rests in our own community. Fiscal oversight is maintained by The Dayton Foundation, which serves the Dayton/Miami Valley area. This partnership allows for the West Carrollton School District community to benefit from local leadership and profit from resources pooled with others in investment growth. Your gifts to the WCEF are tax-deductible, and should be directed to:

A Message from our President, Carrie Cummings

The West Carrollton Education Foundation (WCEF) experienced another successful year in 2017. We hosted the 4th Annual Spring Gala at the University of Dayton’s Boesch Lounge. It was a time to focus on the mission of the WCEF and its importance to the community. More than $8,000 in classroom grants were awarded to teachers in West Carrollton Schools. Two new members were inducted into the Distinguished Service Hall of Fame. Excellence in Education award recipients were honored, and “I Am a Pirate” members recognized. 

On behalf of The Board of Trustees, thank you for choosing to partner with WCEF in 2017. None of what we do would be possible without the ongoing support of our donors. Please consider continuing your support by making a tax-deductible gift to the West Carrollton Education Foundation. We look forward to 2018 and new opportunities to grow and make a lasting impact on the lives of students attending West Carrollton Schools and the community.
