ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

6 June.JPG

The Avon Lake City Schools Foundation ("ALCSF") was formed in 1986 to serve as an advisory committee for awarding grants and scholarships and to help raise funds for the endowments held at the Community Foundation of Lorain County. The ALCSF was incorporated in 2021 so that it could raise money on its own and hold funds needed for operations in a bank account under its own name and employer identification number. The ALCSF has applied for recognition of tax-exempt status under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. If the IRS recognizes the ALCSF's tax exempt status as we expect it will, contributions made directly to the ALCSF will be deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law. The ALCSF will continue to seek contributions to the Community Foundation for the endowments that fund the grants to the Avon Lake City School District and scholarships to our graduating seniors.

 

Grants awarded by the ALCSF enrich and enhance academics, the arts, physical and social-emotional development, and other extracurricular activities. Funded projects have provided new programming, new technology, and additional learning opportunities for every student in the Avon Lake City School District.

 

We appreciate the generosity of parents, teachers and staff, community members, and alumni!
