As a donor or a fund advisor, we are honored to partner with you in your charitable giving. The information below will help you manage your fund and serve as a resource for your grantmaking.
Join us for special Lunch & Learn (Zoom) events to learn about the current needs in our communities, important county-wide data and an inside look at ECCF’s community leadership work.
managing your fund
Our goal is to make your grantmaking easy and rewarding. We are a small but responsive staff, and we are here to help you with any questions you have about the grantmaking process.
ECCF’s Donor Portal provides you access to fund balances, quarterly statements, your grantmaking history and is a convenient resource for making grant recommendations.
Each fund at ECCF is provided a Fund Advisor Portal login. When you open your fund you’ll receive and email with access to the portal and you can choose your custom password.
Fundholders find it necessary at times to change the fund’s advisors. All changes must be made in writing from the donor to ECCF.
adding to your fund
You or other donors may add to the fund at any time. ECCF accepts donations via check, stock or wire and online donations. All gifts of $250 or more will receive a tax letter from ECCF. For donations under $250, the IRS accepts a cancelled check as proof of the donation.
Fund holders are invited to have a donation page that is linked through eccf.org. Please contact your relationship manager for details.
We are happy to accept donations of the proceeds of fundraising events. However, donors will not receive tax benefits unless donations are made directly to the fund. For Field of Interest Funds only, contact an ECCF staff member to see fundraising guidelines on allowable expenses.
Gifts of stock and other securities have many advantages. Please contact us for instructions for how to contribute securities.
end of the year giving
For a fund to receive tax credits for a calendar year, donations must arrive and be processed by ECCF no later than December 31. Please keep holidays in mind when planning your gift.
Your fund is a great mechanism to continue supporting charitable causes beyond your lifetime. A fund can be included in a will or designated for memorial gifts in your honor. Your fund may also be listed as the beneficiary of a retirement fund or transferred to an endowed fund upon your death so that designated charities will continue to receive gifts in your name in perpetuity.
To learn more, contact Stacey Landry, Director of Gift Planning and Advisor Relation,s at (978) 777-8876 x122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECCF is pleased to help donors elevate their giving and connect with causes they care about by providing access to this nonprofit directory. And of course, ECCF staff members are always just a phone call away should a fundholder need guidance or direction in identifying and connecting with nonprofits.
