Canton Golden Bear Education Foundation

Kicks Off Third Annual Century Club Fundraiser


Once again, after a successful 2012 campaign, the Canton Golden Bear Education Foundation will be conducting its annual Century Club fundraiser this summer.  In our attempt to raise a minimum of $10,000 for the Foundation, the goal of the campaign is to generate 100 donations of $100 in 100 days.  Those who wish to donate will become members of the “Century Club” and will have their names posted to the dedicated web page on the Foundation’s web site in recognition of their participation.

“As the Foundation continues to grow we are pleased to be able to offer more to the children in our school system.  We are all well aware of the ongoing cuts in state aid that Canton Central is facing and hope to continue providing the necessary funding for some of the much-needed enhancements that the budget cannot support.” stated Foundation President, Evan Poole.  In the past, the Foundation has been able to assist in the funding of guest speakers, field trips, the fall play, musical instruments and the Whiz Quiz team, just to name a few.

The Foundation hopes to not only reach local alumni but also those potential donors who reside out of the area and still feel a connection to their alma mater.  “ So many people donate annually to their colleges, but may not realize that their former elementary and secondary schools are also struggling and could use their help,” said Poole.  “This is a great opportunity to give back to the school where they spent the first 13 years of their academic lives.”

The 100-day campaign will run from July 23rd through October 31st.  Individuals, families, businesses or groups who would like to become part of the Century Club are invited to visit www.gbfound.org for further details, or simply mail your check to CGBEF – Century Club, P.O. Box 174, Canton, NY 13617.
