Friends of the Foundation is a group of enthusiastic young leaders who want to understand more about community issues. These professionals care deeply about the Erie region, and enjoy learning how ECF works with individuals, nonprofits and local leadership in order to address our most pressing needs. Members of this group may eventually establish their own endowments, or become grants review panelists or board trustees. “Friends” is a great way to become involved, by attending one or two ECF-sponsored forums per year, as well as at least one social gathering. If you would like to learn more, call Susannah Weis Frigon at 454-0843 – we would love to be “Friends!"
