'23 Replenish the Riches Year-End Rally
The Treasure Trove Board of Directors is proud to announce its year-end “Replenish the Riches” fundraising campaign for the Treasure Trove Fund. This is a donor-advised fund held at the Winona Community Foundation for the exclusive benefit of Cochrane-Fountain City Schools.
Over the past three years, the Treasure Trove Giving Circle’s Board of Directors has already approved over $11,000 in grants to pay for specific school need requests that are not otherwise covered by the school budget. The largest of those grants was $3,870 for 10 identical brand-new small engines, parts, and curriculum for the C-FC Tech Ed Department. Other grants have provided funding for the STEM Shuttle experience, Mississippi River Lock and Dam experience, School Event & Signage support, a Voter Education program and Special Education Sensory equipment. The latest grant was awarded for an innovative new program called Math Stackers for Kindergarten and First Grade students and a Tool Chest Organizer grant for student shop areas.
The TTGC fund is an easily accessible resource for teachers and staff to turn to for innovative or unanticipated services, programs, or equipment that can benefit their students. All dollars distributed from the fund must be approved by the Treasure Trove Board of Directors and are only paid directly to C-FC Schools. Contributions are deductible to the extent authorized by law.
The Treasure Trove Fund has grown substantially in just a few years but legacy donations are always welcome. Options to submit donations to the Treasure Trove Fund for C-FC include direct online giving through the www.TreasureTroveGivingCircle.com website, via the Treasure Trove Facebook page, and by mailing donations to the Winona Community Foundation, 111 Riverfront, Suite 2E, Winona, MN 55987 (note Treasure Trove Fund on check).
We welcome returning and new contributors to submit their Treasure Trove Fund donations by December 28st to be counted in the 2023 Replenish the Riches Year End Rally. It’s a GREAT DAY to send in your donation to the Treasure Trove Fund AND a GREAT DAY to be a pirate!
