West Carrollton Education Foundation

SCHOOL FACILITIES AND OFFICES CLOSED THROUGH APRIL 5.

 

In light of the announcement from Governor Mike DeWine, all West Carrollton school facilities will be closed to the public through at least Sunday, April 5. This means that paper copies of homework will no longer be available for pick up or drop off. Homework will continue to be available using the Clever link on the district’s home page. At this time, Grab and Go Meals will still be provided through this Friday. CLICK HERE for the locations.


We realize this is a difficult situation for students and families. Governor DeWine stated, “we have to do this if we want to slow this down.” Continue to follow our DISTRICT NEWS for updates as they occur.

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. 

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

I hope 2020 has gotten off to a fantastic start! As President of the West Carrollton Education Foundation, I looked back over the last year at things that went well for the organization, and potential areas for ongoing growth.

 

In 2019, during our 7th annual recognition gala at the Presidential Center in Kettering, WCEF awarded seven teacher grants totaling $9,491.31. They ranged from $500 to $2,094. These funds will impact students from the pre-school and kindergarten level through High School.

 

Two new members were inducted into the Distinguished Service Hall of Fame: Roger Eberly and Shon Myers. Roger is a long time member of the West Carrollton community. His children were educated in the District, and he served as a coach and volunteer. Shon is President of Farmers & Merchants Bank. He has been a key partner between the District and the Bank. Farmers & Merchants Bank is an original business donor to WCEF, and continues to support the organization financially.

 

Excellence in Education honorees in 2019 were Jennifer Brown, Language Arts teacher from the Middle School, and PJ Babb, Social Studies teacher at the High School. Both were nominated by their building principals because of their commitment to education of students and professionalism. They ultimately went through a rigorous selection process which resulted in Ms. Babb being named the 2019 Dickinson Thetford Guiler Fellow.

 

This year, WCEF looks forward to continuing its progress towards the $250,000 goal needed to become an endowed fund under the auspices of The Dayton Foundation. We opened January 1, 2019 with $81,705.94, and ended with more than $100,000. The ongoing support of our donors was key to a successful year. We hope we can count on you again this year.

 

We invite you to join us in our fundraising efforts, as well as managing the events and activities we pursue in fulfillment of the WCEF mission. Please contact me or any member of the Board of Trustees if you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities, or have feedback that will help us grow.

 

Thank you again for your support! Gifts to WCEF are tax-deductible and much appreciated.
