Community Fund

Thanks to donors like you, ECCF has been able to distribute more than $23 million in grants since our doors first opened. And you can keep the momentum going!

Please consider joining the “You Care. We Care. Eau Claire.” Campaign, which will help grow our Community Fund. Donations to this Campaign will allow us to continue addressing the most urgent and pressing needs of our community’s nonprofits.

Each year, the Community Fund supports grants as part of our Community Grant Cycle. So far, it has granted almost $320,000 to local nonprofits! Your gift can help us make an even bigger impact, both now and for years to come.

You can even donate to this Campaign in honor of a loved one–it’s a gift that will keep on giving!

All of us at ECCF sincerely thank you for making 25 years of support for nonprofits possible. We look forward to working with you as we continue to serve our community. For Good. Forever.
