Mike Mason Fund for St. Francis School

Each of us can be a philanthropist.  This was Frederick Goff’s belief when he created the first Community Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio in 1914.

A group of St. Francis Solanus Elementary School graduates embraced Goff’s philosophy by deciding to support the school that had been instrumental in their formative years.  Each year they hold “The Mike” – a very successful fundraiser.  From that event, they make a donation to the school and send the remainder of their fundraising proceeds to the Community Foundation for the Mike Mason Fund for St. Francis School.

Since the fund is endowed, the principal remains intact with earnings used to assist St. Francis School.  When added to other individual donations, honor and memorial contributions, and the annual fundraiser, those gifts ensure a permanent source of support for the educational needs of future St. Francis students.

Anyone can make a gift to any fund at any time to help it grow. To make a gift to the Mike Mason Fund for St. Francis School, please click here.
