moving forward together

eccf’s annual appeal

A special message from Beth Francis, ECCF President & CEO.

ECCF donors and friends,

Over the last year, we have witnessed Essex County’s 34 cities and towns rebuild from one of the most challenging periods in our history. We have picked each other up, connected with one another and formed countless collaborations to meet our region’s evolving needs. As a result, a new recognition of our collective strength has emerged.

Without a doubt, we are moving forward together.  

Together, through resources and education, we are making our nonprofits stronger. Together, we are investing in expanded access, equipment and training to address the digital divide. Together, we are elevating our creative sector with visibility and connections. And together, we are broadening awareness of racial injustices by educating ourselves and our communities.

ECCF is honored to play an important role in this work. Every day, we work hard to understand the unique needs of our communities, build and foster trusted relationships and convene cross-sector leaders so that together, we can inspire collaborative solutions to our collective challenges.

Today, I am asking you to make a donation to Essex County Community Foundation because as a nonprofit, we cannot do this critical work alone.

We need your help. Know that your contribution is an investment in moving Essex County forward, together.
