The Elmore County Community Foundation is an affiliate of Central Alabama Community Foundation and offers citizens in Elmore County the opportunity to build long-term support for their community. Individuals may establish new funds to support specific purposes or organizations, or they may contribute to existing funds. These charitable funds provide grants to area nonprofits to improve the quality of life in Elmore County. ECCF’s Advisory Board of area citizens oversees an annual grantmaking program that determines the best investment of these community dollars.
The Foundation awards more than $40,000 in scholarship funds each year to area students to further their secondary education. Scholarship criteria vary according to each scholarship.
