In its 23rd year, Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF) inspires philanthropy across the 34 cities and towns in Essex County, Massachusetts.
We do this in three ways: 1) Managing and investing donor’s charitable assets to achieve philanthropic goals; 2) Strengthening and supporting local nonprofits with the knowledge and financial resources needed for local impact; 3) Bringing cross-sector organizations and leaders together to invest in “systems-change” work that addresses social issues in our region.
With over $125 million in charitable assets, the Foundation advises fund/donor advisors on giving strategies to reach their philanthropic goals and maximize their impact. Our family of 275 (and growing) charitable funds delivers over $12 million in grant funding annually.
ECCF has experienced significant growth in the last five years, proving there is real need and opportunity in the regional charitable giving sector. The ECCF team of staff and volunteers work collaboratively, and with great enthusiasm, to deliver on its goals of helping donors fulfill their giving goals and bringing lasting change in their communities.
With a strategic plan driving the growth and impact of the organization (https://www.eccf.org/about), ECCF believes our communities thrive when we have: successful schools and students; safe, clean and green neighborhoods; strong job and economic opportunities; vibrant arts and culture experiences; and healthy people. Further, we recognize that collective thriving requires us to be aware of and tackle longstanding inequities, so are committed to becoming an equitable and inclusive
organization in all we do.
