President's Anniversary Fund

In honor of ECCF's 25th anniversary, ECCF’s Board Chairs and their families came together to start the President’s Anniversary Fund so they could award bonus grants at the 25th Anniversary Event. ECCF received 50 applications for these grants! 

This Fund gave out four $2,500 grants—one for each of ECCF’s four giving categories. The recipients were the Wisconsin Logging Museum; Western DairyLand Economic Opportunity Council; OutdoorMore, Inc; and Children’s Service Society of Wisconsin. As the ECCF Board of Trustees reviewed the 50 applications, they realized that food insecurity needs were great, so the Board awarded an additional $2,500 grant to the St. Francis Food Pantry.

Including grants recommended by new Legacy Society members and event sponsors, ECCF awarded more the $40,000 in grants at the 25th Anniversary event!  And that’s on top of the more than $1.5 million in grants that ECCF has already distributed in 2022 alone!
