ECC Foundation


Established in 1982, the ECC Foundation is a non-profit organization set up to receive donations that provide educational support for the college. Local, state, and federal dollars meet the college’s basic needs but do not provide adequate funds to fulfill all of the needs, such as financial aid, capital expenses, equipment, special projects, and instructional support.

Since its founding, the Foundation has focused primarily on meeting the financial needs of students. In 2014-2015, the organization awarded $75,000 in student scholarships. More than 100 students benefit annually from these funds.

The Foundation also provides mini-grants to faculty and staff for upgrading or enhancing programs and professional skills, and sponsors the Keihin Endowed Faculty Chair Award, the Excellence in Teaching Award, the Staff Award, and the Student Ambassador program.

We are indebted to all of the donors for their loyal commitment and generous gifts to the college and the ECC Foundation.
