The Foundation for the Continuation of Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County was incorporated in October 1994. With a primary mission of soliciting and holding major gifts and contributions, the Foundation will assist in the long-term financial security of the agency.
As a totally independent organization, the Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees.
The Educational Scholarship Fund
Children’s Mentoring Connection Educational Scholarship Fund was created out of the dream of Dan Kuhlman, an active Big Brother in the Hancock County program. It was officially established by a resolution unanimously passed by the Board of Directors on December 18, 1990.
Any boy or girl who currently or formerly has been actively matched with a mentor through CMC for a minimum of one year may apply. Recipients may attend any accredited two, four or five-year college, university, business school, technical school, and/or any post-high school education, classes. Priority will be given to those attending full-time classes. For more information, see the Scholarship Guidelines, Scholarship Applications, and the Recommendation Form.
In 2019 a scholarship fund was added for graduating High School Seniors who volunteered their time to Children’s Mentoring Connection as a High School Mentor. These individuals volunteer their time each week serving as a mentor at one of the school-based programs. For an application for this program contact the CMC office at 419-424-9752
All funds available for scholarships must come from gifts, private donations, bequests, and/or other contributions. None of the funds come from the agency’s operating budget. The fund is financially administered by Foundation for the Continuation of the Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County, a 501(c) 3 charitable organization, and all contributions are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Contributions may be sent to:
Children’s Mentoring Connection * 305 E. Lincoln St. * Findlay, OH 45840
Checks should be made out to the Foundation for the Continuation of the CMC with the Educational Scholarship Fund noted in the memo.
Additional information regarding the Fund may be obtained from the Executive Director at 419-424-975.
