Recently Paula Fritz Eddy, the Executive Director from the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF), met with the Board of Trustees from the Stackpole-Hall Foundation to thank them and report to the Trustees how their investment in the Elk County Community Foundation has contributed to the success of the organization.
Since the inception of ECCF, Stackpole-Hall Foundation has provided, initial operating dollars; encouraged trustees to support ECCF; and ongoing guidance and assistance from their staff, Dr. William Conrad and Dennis Bonanno. Over the years Stackpole-Hall’s support has been nearly three quarters of a million dollars. ECCF has been able to give their total support back to the community two and half time and by year end they will have grown to nearly 10 time their combined gifts. “Because of the support from the Stackpole-Hall Foundation, the Community Foundation was able to concentrate on developing relationships and establishing named funds” said Mrs. Eddy. She went on to say that “ We did not have to do major fundraisers that would compete with the agencies we are trying to help with our dollars.”. ECCF remains grateful to the Stackpole-Hall Foundation for their support and partnership that helps strengthen our region.
Unfortunately, due to weather predications a number of the out of town Trustees were not able to be there.
