Response and Recovery Community Fund Phase 3 Grantees Announced

ECCF is pleased to announce that it has awarded $137,315 in Phase 3 Response and Recovery Community Fund grants to 17 local nonprofits, bringing the total impact of ECCF's pandemic-related granting to more than $612,000! This amount wouldn't have been possible without a generous $30,000 donation from the XCel Energy Foundation.

These grants support Chippewa Valley nonprofits in their work to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and were awarded in conjunction with United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley. Each organization offered its own grant opportunities, then collaborated to ensure that their grant awards would be the most effective at meeting Chippewa Valley needs. These grants, when combined with previous pandemic-related granting, bring their collective impact to almost $975,000!

While the Response and Recovery Community Fund is now closed, ECCF welcomes donations to its Community Fund, which addresses the Eau Claire area's greatest needs through our annual grant cycle.
