History of the Foundation

    In 2003, the Canton Central School District Board of Education, in response to the financial and programmatic needs of the district, created a Resource Development Committee.  The RDC made a formal recommendation to the Board to move forward in providing leadership in creating an educational foundation.  The RDC developed a Foundation Formation Committee which conducted years of research on the best possible entity to conduct business.  The FFC moved forward in creating a not-for-profit corporation which was established on April 14, 2008.  In November 2008, the Canton Golden Bear Education Foundation Inc. was granted 501(c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service, allowing the CGBEF to accept tax deductible donations to benefit the Canton Central School District.
