The CCRS Education Foundation
At The CCRS Education Foundation we believe that our efforts can make a huge difference at our wonderful school. The CCRS Education Foundation's mission is to promote enhanced education for students at Chazy Central Rural School.
Chazy Central Rural School Education Foundation
It is very encouraging to see all the interest in our organization. In case some of you are wondering what we are all about, I'll give you a brief synopsis.
The CCRS Education Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by CCRS alum Lori LaFave '87. We are a fully tax deductible organization, whose mission is "To promote enhanced education for students at Chazy Central Rural School, and to stimulate public & professional interest in such education."
Why form such an organization? Well, we all know the budget crunch that all schools face, and this is our way of providing for those items that won't fit under the budget. Think of the CCRSEF as the "academic boosters" for our beloved school.
CCRS Education Foundation is also a place to house special donor opportunities. We can accept the following:
• Individual tax-deductible donations
• Corporate tax-deductible donations
• Joint charitable giving programs (for example, your employer may have a charity match, if you give them the CCRS Education Foundation as your preferred charity)
• We can accept bequests, and we can be a part of your estate planning
• We can also apply for state and federal grants to administer to CCRS.
Sounds incredible, right?!
We will accept grant applications from faculty and staff at CCRS, and award grants twice yearly. We are pleased to have received several applications already.
Please consider spreading the word. We are happy to accept any donation, just send your check to:
