St. Marys, PA: The Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF) was pleased to award a grand total of $13,000 to the Fox Township Little League. Grant dollars were distributed from the Elk County Development Fund and the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund. Each of these funds are managed by ECCF, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies. This award will go towards an outdoor pavilion that will include a removable batting cage and storage for various recreational purposes. This will benefit all who participate in the little leagues and softball teams, as well as other youth and families local to this area.
Throughout the year, both the Elk County Development Fund and the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund hold multiple cycles for eligible organizations to apply for granting monies. This allows for more opportunities for ECCF to achieve philanthropic goals and to assist with projects that will benefit our communities.
In addition, there are various types of funds, including many Donor Advised funds, managed by the Elk County Community Foundation. Every fund holds some capacity to give back to local projects and communities.
