The Erie Community Foundation cannot accomplish anything without donors who support our mission. While our named funds normally begin with gifts of $10,000 or more, The Erie Community Foundation accepts gifts of any size. Gifts can be made to our general fund or to any of over 600 named funds.
Additionally, we have significant experience facilitating gifts of appreciated securities, real estate, as well as with the creation of charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder and charitable lead trusts.
The vast majority of our named funds are permanently endowed. Smaller, non-endowed, gifts are distributed to our community through our competitive grants program.
It's simple to create your own fund—you can do it in a matter of minutes. Just call us at (814) 454-0843.
