Foundation Annual Report 2016


Foundation Annual Report 2016 From the Chairman Dear Friends: The Erie Community College Foundation impacts students’ lives daily. It can be through providing a scholarship, investing in areas of academic excellence or supporting the college’s strategic initiatives with philanthropic support and guidance. We invest in our alumni and former students by providing professional development, connections and social interaction. The ECC Foundation has increased its assets more than 200 percent in the last five years. We are proud of our growth and in turn, the additional resources we are able to provide to students and the college. But our job is not nearly complete. The outstanding staff and board of directors work tirelessly every day to connect our alumni, donors and friends to the institution. We recognize our strength is greater in numbers and greater when we all work toward the same outcome. We do not walk this path alone but rather in tandem with you. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Erie Community College and the Foundation staff, I’d like to thank you for support this year and encourage you to read our 2016 Annual Report on the following pages.
