Dear Friends of the Foundation, Webster defines community as “a group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.” We at the Foundation define community as people who care enough about each other to come together for the greater good of the place they live. Community is the essence of who we are. The Timken Foundation, Bob Gulling, and the original Board of Trustees of the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation certainly understood community. They pooled their money, time, talents and passion to create the BACF hoping the foundation would provide for the county’s future. The many exciting initiatives begun over the last few years in Crawford County which the BACF supported with leadership and funding have vindicated this vision. SPARC, the tri-county (Ashland, Richland, Crawford) P-16 council has made enormous strides in encouraging more of our high school graduates to pursue post-secondary training and education. This year, in a partnership with all six county school systems and with a grant from the Ohio Board of Regents and the BACF, there will be a college counselor in all the high schools one day a week to aid the students with testing, applications and decisions on life after high school. SPARC has also just hired a pre-school director who will begin to coordinate day care centers, preschools and kindergartens to be sure that our young children are ready to begin their educational careers. Our schools are working together with our businesses to require a “capstone” or senior project of all our graduates. This is certainly evidence of “community” at work.

Janet Pry

Executive Director

2020 Vision, a county-wide strategic plan written by the people of Crawford County for its future, has hired a manager to drive the initiative forward. Active committees are focusing on Quality of Life, Business Success & Job Availability, Workforce Preparation & Education Team, and Public Safety/Drug Abuse. In partnership with the Ohio Mutual Insurance Group, a Crawford Unlimited Leadership program was started in September 2011 which will begin to train our younger generation to take the helm and make Crawford County a community of choice. Crawford County—an exciting place to be in 2011. By year’s end the BACF will have a new home at the corner of East Mansfield Street and Lane Avenue due once again to the support of the Timken Foundation. Our new home will give us a sense of permanence, visibility and stature in our community. The BACF is here for good and providing “Direction for the Future” for our community.

Sincerely,

Janet P. P. Pry, Executive Director

Bucyrus Area Community Foundation now Confirmed with National Standards The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation received notification in December of 2011 that it has met the nation’s highest philanthropic standards for operational quality, integrity and accountability. The notice comes from the Council on Foundations, a national professional association based in Washington, D.C. “This is similar to the Good Housekeeping Seal for community foundations,” said Steve Gunderson, Council on Foundations president and chief executive officer. “It says that the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation has demonstrated a commitment to operational quality, integrity and accountability.” The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations Program requires community foundations to document their policies for donor services, investments, grantmaking and administration. With over 200 community foundations already confirmed in compliance nationwide, the program is designed to provide quality assurance to donors, as well as to their legal and financial advisors. This is critically important to our donors. When people make a charitable bequest, establish a fund or set up an annuity, they are putting their trust in the BACF. They are counting on us to manage their investment wisely, honor their charitable wishes and, in some cases, provide lifetime income to a loved one. The National Standards confirmation says our house is in order. The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation offers a range of charitable funds, allowing donors to advance a cause such as education or the environment, support an individual organization, provide flexible support for community needs or recommend individual grants. In addition to affirming the organization’s philanthropic services, the confirmation validates the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation’s grantmaking practices for the nonprofit community.

“Some say it’s easier to create wealth than to give money away wisely,” said Dr. Glenn McMurray, Bucyrus Area Community Foundation board president. “There’s some truth in that. Grantmaking is a lot like investing… we need to assess risks, weigh potential gains, diversify assets, monitor performance and operate fairly. When you see the National Standards Seal, you can be assured that we’re committed to meeting the highest standards for grantmaking as well.” The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations program is the first of its kind for charitable foundations in the United States.

Our Foundation

The BACF is a permanent, tax-exempt, public charitable foundation established to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Bucyrus and the surrounding Crawford County area. Started with the help of The Timken Foundation in 1984, it is a vehicle by which individuals, groups, and corporations may channel contributions to the community. The BACF works diligently to fulfill our mission of improving life in the Crawford County community by: Awarding grants to the charitable organizations, schools and municipalities within our designated geographic area. These grants will provide help in areas of education, health and human services, youth and recreational activities, economic development, environmental improvements, the arts, cultural and civic programs and other valuable community programs. Helping donors decide the best and most effective way to meet their charitable wishes. Providing leadership in helping the community in meeting its ongoing and demanding community needs. Managing our investments to insure the continuation and growth of the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation’s asset base. With the help of multiple professional investment advisors, the BACF is able to offer a safe method for both protecting and growing our assets. Sponsoring Special Projects where we work with community groups and organizations to help dreams become realities. The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation will be giving support and creating possibilities in our community for years to come.

Make This Your Best Year

Within the next 50 years Crawford County will experience a peak transfer of wealth from one generation to the next. The good news is that in Crawford County we are hoping to turn 5% of our community’s wealth into an endowment dedicated to community good. The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation, an endowment helping us secure our future, could grow within 50 years to $50 million thanks to donors in this community who have made generous gifts today—as well as many who have designated the Community Foundation through a future planned gift.

If we preserve at least 5% of the estimated wealth transfer for our community, in 50 years we will have built a $50 million fund that will generate millions every year for Crawford County community projects and priorities.

Earlier this year, the Community Foundation asked people who love Crawford County to consider giving to the BACF, or one of the designated funds within our foundation. If we reach our goal—preserving at least 5% of the estimated wealth transfer for our community—in 50 years, we will have built a $50 million fund that will generate millions every year for Crawford County community projects and priorities, forever. Endowed funds last forever and grow over time because the principal is never spent. Earnings are used to make grants in the name of each fund, supporting charitable causes and creating personal legacies of giving in Crawford County. Because assets earmarked for the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation are unrestricted, they can be used to address pressing needs and not-to-be-missed opportunities in our community—even as they change over time. Some Crawford County citizens have designated the Community Foundation as a beneficiary of their insurance policies or included the Community Foundation in their estate plans in order to help grow the BACF endowment. Both are easy ways to make a meaningful charitable gift, while reserving choice assets for heirs. The Community Foundation can accept a variety of assets as part of a lifetime or planned gift: cash, appreciated securities, real estate, insurance policies, and more. We can work with you or your professional advisor to discuss the year-end and long-term giving options that will make tax time more rewarding—for you and for your community.

The Bucyrus Area Community Foundation is blessed to have approximately 90% of our funds unrestricted. These funds allow for ever-changing community needs – including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift was made. The Board of Trustees of the BACF works extremely hard to ensure that all aspects of the community are addressed within our grant making efforts. In 2008 the BACF received a large (in excess of $1 million) unrestricted gift from the Elsasser’s estate which will add to our unrestricted funds

New Funds at the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation since 2008 The Bucyrus Public Library Fund in Memory o fMarian E. and Norman H. Maynard shared a love of learning, of books,

and of the library. Marion would read to her grandchildren before every nap and before bed. As soon as their grandchildren could write they were taken to their local library to get their own library card. Norman was famous for marching the grandchildren to the library for books whenever they had a new school research project. Marion was the first female editor of her high school newspaper and knew the important relationship between reading and writing. She used to say, “If you want to be a good writer, you must first be a great READER! So...Read, Read, Read!” This love of reading and libraries was so important that their children, Pete Maynard of Bucyrus, Phil Maynard of Akron, and Nancy Maynard of San Ramon, CA, have started an endowment fund for the Bucyrus Public Library in their honor. This endowment will provide a steady income stream to the library for years to come. Anyone wishing to add to this fund may do so by contacting the BACF.

New Scholarships at the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation since 2008

Susan Richardson Campbell was a graduate of Wynford High

School. She was a coach, guidance counselor, and teacher of Health and Physical Education at Colonel Crawford High School. Susan was a member of the Colonel Crawford Lions Club and was the first Colonel Crawford High School Leo Club Advisor, a student service organization sponsored by the Colonel Crawford Lions Club. She was dedicated to participating in and promoting student participation in community service. 22


Susan was married to Chuck Campbell. They had two children: Aaron (Roz) Campbell and Brooke (Glenn) McKee. Sue passed away in 1997 following a courageous battle with cancer. The Colonel Crawford Lions Club started this scholarship to honor Sue’s commitment to the importance of community service; hence documentation of community service on the application is a requirement. Anyone wishing to add to this scholarship fund may do so by contacting the BACF.

Agency Endowments

Agency

Endowments


An agency endowment

is a type of designated fund established by a charity at a community foundation for the charity’s own benefit or the benefit of a related entity. For example, an art museum transfers funds to a community foundation to establish a fund that will provide annual distributions to the art museum for its own use. The agency endowment is a unique tool for a not-for-profit to provide a safe and established vehicle to grow its endowment funds. By placing the endowments with the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation, the agency’s fund has the benefit of the financial advisors, oversight and size of the BACF’s endowment fund. Donations to these funds can be made at any time by cash contributions, bequests in wills or other financial planning methods. Income from these agency funds are not distributed until the fund value reaches $25,000. Anyone wishing to contribute to these funds and has questions may contact the BACF office.

New Agency Finds Schines’ Bucyrus Theatre had its grand opening on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1936. On August 8, 1991, the theatre was extensively damaged by a fire and the theatre did not reopen. The Bucyrus Community Theatre’s Bucyrus Community Theatre Board of Directors has determined www.bucyruscommunitytheatre.org that the theatre renovation will result in returning a community asset to all citizens of Bucyrus and the surrounding area. The eventual success of this activity will provide a quality venue for the performing arts, classic motion pictures, musical concerts, dance recitals, music recitals, educational events as well as providing conference areas for use by community groups. The Bucyrus Community Theatre Fund at the BACF was started in January of 2011 and will, when fully funded, provide continual support to the theatre.

The ambitious dream to establish an agricultural museum by the Crawford Antique Farm Machinery Association and the Wynford FFA evolved over many years. The dream became reality with Crawford Antique Farm groundbreaking for the Crawford Machinery Association Museum of Agriculture in 2004. Spirited fund raising efforts headed by CAFMA and the FFA combined with generous contributions provided financing for the $115,000 museum. Financial partners included: Bucyrus Area Community Foundation - $35,000, Timken Corporation - $ $25,000, Wynford FFA - $ 10,000, Farm Bureau - $ 5,000, and Launders Foundation - $5,000. Additional “in kind” services were provided by: Volunteers – fundraising & labor; McKeever & Associates – site plan; Crawford County Engineers Office – site work; and Chuck Studer – electrical wiring. Countless visitors are now enjoying the completed and wellappointed Crawford Museum of Agriculture located on the Crawford County Fairgrounds in Bucyrus. The Friends of the Crawford Park District are planning for the longterm by building an endowment fund to benefit the parks. The Crawford principal of the fund will be Park District invested, with only the income from the fund utilized to benefit Friends of the Crawford Park District the parks. The purpose of the www.crawfordparkdistrict.org endowment fund will be to assist the Crawford Park District in acquiring, improving, or maintaining capital assets including land and buildings.

School Endowments

Endowments


2009 - 2011 School Endowment Grants In 2000 the Bucyrus Area Community Foundation offered matching grants to the five school systems within the BACF’s service area. (Galion Schools were therefore excluded.) These funds were established so that the income off the funds went directly back to the individual school systems. Each school has established their own endowment committees who have helped raised money for the funds and oversee the grant making process. They accept the grant applications from the teachers and make the decisions as to grant distribution. The income from these funds is to provide for those needs that are NOT met by the regular school budget. After much hard work the smallest school endowment fund is now over $100,000.

The key to having a rewarding giving experience is finding the best fit— for your charitable priorities, financial goals, and personal preferences.

Most philanthropists do a combination of these. What is your timing preference? Give all gifts during lifetime Gift some lifetime gifts; some after death Give all gifts after death Income.

It’s an easy way to make a legacy gift without modifying your estate plan. Upon your death, your gift is placed into the charitable fund of your choosing.

A legacy of giving Endowment

What is endowment? When you create a charitable fund through your community foundation, you have the opportunity to benefit the community forever with a permanent endowment. Your gift is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift—and all future earnings from your gift—is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work today and in the future. Legacy and stability. Donors who endow their gifts can make a difference in their community during their lifetime and, at the same time, provide a gift that lasts forever. Grants will continue to be made in the name of the fund you establish so that your charitable wishes are preserved, even if an organization receiving grants ceases to exist in the future. Leaders of a nonprofit organization may also look to the community foundation to hold their organization’s endowment because they know that having a constant source of funding helps them respond to emergency needs as well as plan for the future and sustain the good work they do. Expert help. When donors or nonprofit organizations work through the community foundation to achieve their charitable goals, they benefit from the expertise of experienced local individuals, community leadership, and investment management.

The power of endowment A half century ago, Paul Cesarz made a choice that continues to benefit his community today. He created an endowed fund in 1952 with $150,000 in assets. The fund immediately began earning income and distributing grants to causes important to him. Fifty years later and 35 years after Paul’s death, the Cesarz Fund had grown to $1,066,003. And in that 50th year, it generated more than $50,000 in grants, supporting a range of community needs—a park renovation, a museum exhibit, cancer research, and more. Because Paul chose to endow his gift, he has enabled more than $1.1 million in grants to go to his community—almost eight times the impact he would have made by giving the original gift to charity all at once. And though Paul has passed away, the fund in his name will go on supporting his community, leaving a lasting legacy. (A scenario.)

A personal legacy of giving Bequest by Will

Including a charitable bequest in your estate plan is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this gift through your community foundation, we establish a special fund that benefits the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving. How it works • You include the community foundation in your will or estate plan as a bequest; we can help you or your attorney with recommended language. • You determine the type of fund you would like to establish with your gift. • Upon your death, we set up a special fund in your name, in the name of your family, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. • Your charitable gift is excluded from your assets for estate tax purposes. • We consider your charitable wishes and determine the areas of community need that would be most impacted by grants from your gift. • Our board issues grants in the name of the fund you establish (if you prefer, grants can be made anonymously). • We handle all the administrative details. • Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift—and all future earnings from your gift—is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever. The gift of a lifetime Irene Hoover and her husband owned a bakery and enjoyed a great deal of success and prominence in their hometown. After her husband passed away two years ago, Irene decided it was time for her to update her will. Part of her plan was to give something back to the community the Hoovers had loved as both residents and business owners. “Not only did Jim and I love our town, but we felt as though we owed it a lot for the success of our business,” says Irene. With the help of her professional advisor, Irene revised her will to include an inheritance for the Hoover’s college-age niece, with the remainder creating the Hoover Bakery Fund, a Field of Interest Fund designed to support community development efforts. Because it will be endowed, her gift will provide a growing source of community funding for festivals, neighborhood revitalization, publicly accessible artwork, and other community improvements. “I like knowing that when I’m gone, our legacy will be one of helping others strengthen our community,” says Irene. (A scenario.)

Choosing community over taxes Charitable Beneficiary Designation

Naming the community foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy is not only easy to do, it is also a way to make a significant and lasting gift to our community that may not be possible during your lifetime. How it works • You designate the community foundation as a full or partial beneficiary of your qualified retirement plan (401(k) or IRA) or life insurance policy using a form supplied by the policy underwriter or plan administrator. • Upon your death, the benefit comes to the community foundation. We set up a special fund in your name, in the name of your family, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. Or, you may choose to have the assets contributed to an existing fund. • We handle all the administrative details. • Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.

A safe way to make a big impact Kevin and Mary Goodman care deeply about their family and their community. So, they turned to their professional advisor for guidance in fulfilling their desires to ensure that their children are taken care of and a charitable legacy is left to the community. When they learned that retirement assets are often subject to two taxes (income and estate tax) that could reduce the value of those assets by up to 75% if left to their children, they quickly determined that their IRA would be best designated for charity. By naming their community foundation as a beneficiary of the retirement assets, they would be assured that their gift would be paid directly to the foundation and would not be subject to income or estate taxes. They also knew that every dollar would be preserved for the community they love. “It made sense to our family to handle our retirement assets in this manner. It is an easy and gratifying way to leave a legacy to our community,” says Mary. (A scenario.)
