The ECCF Summer Newsletter is Here! Posted on June 12, 2020 by Eau Claire Community Foundation Click below to read about ECCF's latest happenings, including efforts to address pandemic-related needs. Since the Annual Meeting had to be cancelled, it also includes information normally covered there. Thank you to all the wonderful donors and nonprofits who made these accomplishments possible! We want you to know that ECCF fully supports current efforts to promote social justice. We're committed to the principle that all lives are equally valuable, and we want to make sure that all Eau Claire area residents--regardless of skin color or economic background--can thrive in our community. Racism ends when hearts change. It is not something for people of color alone to resolve – it’s something we all need to commit to ending. The origin of the word "philanthropy" is "humanity, benevolence, love of mankind." Together, we can make sure everyone gets a chance to experience true philanthropy.
