Community Foundation’s Elk County Society for Special Services fund awards grant to St. Boniface

St. Marys, PA, October 30, 2018:  The Elk County Society for Special Services (ECSSS) Fund, under the management of the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF), recently awarded a $1,000 grant to St. Boniface for seventeen additional activity centers for their pre-school program. The ECSSS Fund, established in 2003, awards grants to non-profit organizations that provide services for deserving and qualified charitable purposes with a preference to Pre-K education programs.

Since the early 90’s, St. Boniface has offered a half-time preschool program. Their goal is to provide a Christian-based full-time preschool for area students in the near future. Innovative learning materials at new and improved work centers will provide both educational and social opportunities for the students.

ECCF 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.
