The Firelands Endowment Fund is supported by the Community Foundation of Lorain County. The Community Foundation is a non-profit organization that began in 1980 and is dedicated to making all of Lorain County a better place to live and work. The Foundation is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors who hire investment managers who pools all assets to increase investment diversification, thereby reducing costs.
Locally, we have Endowment Trustee’s who oversee the accounts managed for The Firelands Local School Districts. These dedicated individuals are able to award as much as 5.5% of the average market value of each account, annually. Earnings are reinvested into the principal to keep the funds growing for future needs. This support will be used to enhance non-required school programs and student scholarships. The Firelands Endowment Fund shall be used for the support and enhancement of Education within The Firelands Local School District.
Fundraisers, such as A Taste of Firelands, and donations to the various accounts allows the Endowment Trustees to continue to support our programs and our students. Your contributions are necessary to keep this program growing and they are sincerely appreciated.
