A Message from our President, Carrie Cummings

 May 11, 2022
 
The last two years have been quite an experience due to COVID, but I am pleased to say the West Carrollton Education Foundation (WCEF) is a survivor!  We never stopped serving our school community.  Like many non-profit organizations, we had to find ways to continue our mission in spite of circumstances.  We learned to utilize technology and ultimately thrive in a virtual world.  We made some tough decisions that provided value, but also impacted the organization financially.
 
We made the decision to award grants in both 2020 ($10,188.59) and 2021 ($10,018.62), while not proactively soliciting donations during a difficult time, nor taking withdrawals from the resources set aside for endowment purposes.  Instead, it was accomplished by utilizing funds from our operating account that were previously generated from a combination of individual and business donations, and our annual fundraising Gala.  The Board believed strongly that the pandemic was a time to demonstrate support and encouragement for our teachers and students.  Awarding those grants was the right thing to do.
 
Although faced with a very limited budget, I am pleased to say we will be awarding grants in 2022.  However, we need your help to provide a similar level of funding as in the past.  Grants are foundational to what we do, but raising funds to strengthen the operating account as we move forward is critical.
 
Over the next two months, we would like to generate at least $10,000.  This will better position us to respond to both goals.  Thus, on behalf of the WCEF Board of Trustees, I am asking for your financial support.  There are two ways to give.  First, you can make a check payable to The Dayton Foundation, and write on the memo line WCEF Fund #3691.  It should be mailed to The Dayton Foundation, at 1401 S. Main St, Suite 100, Dayton, OH 45409.  Second, you can donate online at The Dayton Foundation website using the link below.   https://www.daytonfoundation.org/ccgift.html?fund=West_Carrollton_Education_Foundation_Money_Market_Fund_3691
 
Finally, instead of a spring fundraising gala, we are planning a fall event on October 6th.  Please stay tuned for more information via email, online at https://www.westcarrolltonschools.com/WestCarrolltonEducationFoundation.aspx, and on the WCEF Facebook page.
 
Thank you for all of your past support!  We look forward to hearing from you during this fundraising campaign, as well as your participation in future events.   This is a great time to reflect on past successes and strategies to move forward.  Our success is dependent on the generosity of others.  We hope we can count on you.
 
Carrie W. Cummings, President
