The Eau Claire Community Foundation is proud to announce $146,989 in grant awards through its 2019 competitive grant cycle. Most grant recipients accepted their checks at ECCF’s Annual Meeting on June 6.
This year’s 44 grant awards bring ECCF’s current 2019 disbursements through competitive and Donor-Advised granting to almost $1.2 million. You can click the link below to see a complete list of this year's ECCF competitive grant award recipients.
Community support is vital for the continuation of ECCF’s grant awards, which help local nonprofits fulfill their missions. Grants are awarded in four major giving areas:
Create Culture (arts and museums)
Form Futures (education and training)
Give Green (environment, physical fitness, and animals)
Offer Opportunities (food, shelter, accessibility, and other basic needs)
ECCF strongly encourages the public to donate to its Community Fund, which supports a diverse array of local nonprofits. They can also contribute to any of ECCF’s many other funds or even start their own. ECCF’s new Socially Responsible Investment portfolio offers an especially good option for donors who want their money to be invested in companies they can feel good about.
