ECC Foundation: Investing in future leaders
The ECC Foundation exists as a separate 501(c)(3) charitable organization affiliated with the college. Thanks to the foundation, over $590,000 in direct institutional support was awarded in the 2017-2018 fiscal year. The foundation also competes successfully to secure private funding for innovative projects that would not otherwise be possible.
