Executive Director of Elk County Community Foundation speaks to Johnsonburg Rotary
On Monday, February 17th, the Johnsonburg Rotary’s program chairperson, Dr. Pamela Allegretto-Diiulio, introduced Paula Fritz Eddy, the Executive
Director of the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF). Paula updated Rotarians on the status of the Alva K. Gregory Scholarship. This fund has
provided in the last 15 years, scholarships to 29 different students from Johnsonburg Area High School and Elk County Catholic High School. Over
$20,500 has been given out in scholarships.
In the past twenty years, ECCF has given over $650,000 in the Elk County area in grants and scholarships. They oversee 205 funds of which 110 are
scholarship funds. Mrs. Eddy wrapped it up with “we are about connecting people who care with causes that matter.” She distributed the annual report to Rotarians, which is testimony to the many philanthropists and charitable acts that make the Foundation a vital part of the community in providing assistance to students and non-profitable organizations.
