Royal CU and ECCF Nonprofit Professional Development Fund

The mission of the Royal CU and ECCF Nonprofit Professional Development Grant program is to support Eau Claire area nonprofits by providing funding for professional development opportunities, which many nonprofits can’t afford on their own. This grant program will help them attend trainings that provide crucial education for their staff and Board members.

You can help support opportunities for local nonprofits by donating to this Fund!
