The Oberlin Schools Endowment Fund was established in 1986 by the Oberlin Board of Education. Our purpose is to help provide extra resources for the Oberlin City Schools through grants. It is a nonprofit,charitable fund that is under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of Lorain County. It is governed by a 14-person board.
An annual letter campaign, as well as smaller fundraising events, help to build the fund. The Endowment Fund is also interested in any type of charitable gift planning that a potential donor might consider. Those donations could be in the form of appreciated stock, a piece of real property, or one of the simplest forms of gift, the mention of the Oberlin Schools Endowment Fund in a will or estate plan. Donations to the Endowment Fund are never spent, only the investment income is used to fund grants. The fund has grown appreciably since its establishment. We would like to see it continue to grow so that the amount available for grants, to support the Oberlin schools, likewise grows. Donations to the fund are truly an investment in the children of Oberlin.
