Mission Statement: The East Central College Foundation was established to support the growth and development of East Central College in whatever ways might be beneficial to our students, our staff, and our facility.
The Foundation solicits and receives tax-deductible gifts which are managed for the benefit of the college and its students. It is chartered as a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization for educational purposes.
East Central College is the only institution of higher education based in Franklin County, serving thousands of students annually. It is the institution that educates the workforce in our area creating a positive impact in our community. Please join us in our mission to change lives through education. We give our students a bright future that they, in turn, can invest back into our communities, our companies, and our lives.
Every dollar committed to the ECC Foundation helps strengthen our communities for all of us and enhances the lives of our students forever. It is an economic and human investment.
The gift of an education is the gift that lasts a lifetime.
