“Community Fund”



Do you want to support Eau Claire area nonprofits without having to set up your own fund? If so, a gift to the Community Fund might be a great option for you.

This Fund supports grants to a wide variety of local organizations. Unlike many other Funds, which have a specific focus, the Community Fund is unrestricted. Its flexibility allows ECCF to fund grant applications that address the community's most pressing needs annually. 

A gift to the Community Fund is an excellent way to ensure that a diverse array of nonprofits can continue their work on behalf of the greater Eau Claire area. Your gift will continue to give forever through this endowment.

Since 1999, the Community Fund has granted over $300,000 to area nonprofits. Some of the nonprofits that have benefited over the years are:
