The Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF) is a non-profit community organization governed by a Board of Directors. At their February board meeting, the Foundation recognized three outgoing board members who have volunteered their time to guide ECCF, dedicating significant time and energy to help grow the Foundation as a sustainable and community-oriented organization.

Nancy Hoffman, a resident of Ridgway, joined the Board in 2014. She chaired the Marketing Committee and served on the Grants Committee for many years. As a graphic designer, Nancy shared her time and talents while she helped with many of our projects including many years as the Foundation’s annual report designer.

Chris Imbrogno joined the ECCF Board in 2014. As an RN working for Penn Highland Community Nurses for many years, she brought not only her community involvement, but also her perspective on community health needs to the table. Chris served on the Grants Committee for many years. Chris was fortunate to gain knowledge of and commitment to the Foundation from her father, John Kojancic, who was a founding member of the Elk County Community Foundation.

Dennis Bonnano served as a member of the Board since 2017. Prior to that time he served on the Investment Committee since the early days of the Foundation. Denny also reviewed the Foundation’s quarterly Board Reports and helped ECCF’s first director set up the Quickbooks system prior to 2005. He served on the Grants Committee, Scholarship Committee, and as Vice President from 2019 to 2022.

The Elk County Community Foundation is grateful to these outgoing members who have volunteered their time to guide ECCF and help chart our past, present and future.

ECCF, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies, is a non-profit organization that strives to strengthen our region through development, stewardship and grant making as it works with donors to achieve their philanthropic goals.
