Memorial Rose

The CFCC Memorial Rose is a convenient, cost-effective way to honor or remember a loved one and to give eternal tribute. Memorial Roses are $50 each: for local delivery only. The rose is easy to display, retain as a keepsake, or store for future generations. It is silk or fabric; the vase is glass or porcelain and comes with a card or letter for display. Anyone can give one of these roses for any reason by contacting the CFCC office at (812) 365-2900 or by emailing charbeson@cf-cc.org. A portion of this amount is tax-deductible, according to the IRS. This portion of the money is given to an endowed fund held at the CFCC so that all generations to come may benefit as an act of tribute.

Donor Bill of Rights

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  • To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  • To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.
  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
  • To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  • To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forth right answers.

The Community Foundation of Crawford County does NOT store any donor's credit card or social security information on its servers or on its software. Your privacy is a priority for us.
