We are parents, teachers, community members and administrators who believe in the potential of the youth of the Tri-Creek area. Bound together by a common goal of funding programs which fall outside of normal funding, or which cannot be funded. This includes scholarships to deserving students. Our purpose is to raise the funds necessary to educate our youth in new ways and improve on the traditional methods. Through tax deductible donations to the foundation, we will be giving our children the tools they need to go on to higher education. Our children's goals will soon be the goals of our community and to achieve their dreams is to achieve our own. The Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 Tax Deductible Foundation.

for a “Challenge Match” to the Crown Point Community Foundation (CPCF).
Those “agencies” which have Endowment Funds held within the CPCF can add to their Endowment Fund and be matched $.50 for each $1 if the deposit is at least $1,000. Multiple private donations made payable to Tri-Creek Education Foundation earmarked for our Endowment Fund will be combined, and transferred with each $1,000 total so any amount is appreciated.
When you are thinking about making your year-end tax deductible contributions and want to increase your impact on Tri-Creek students and staff, please strongly consider this Challenge Match.
Thank you for all you do as we work together in providing the best opportunities for our Tri-Creek students and staff.
Our logo symbolizes the flame of learning, with three flames, one for each of the three townships in which our students live. It is this flame which the Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. fuels through funding innovative educational programs, scholarships and program grants. A forward looking group of parents, community leaders and educators established this foundation in 2000 with the hope of creating a self sustaining source of funding for the future.
