ECC Foundation Events
As a tenured faculty member at the college…I know how events like these can make a difference for our students and our institution. There are so many students that without the work of the Foundation, they wouldn’t be able to attend ECC.

The ECC Foundation hosts events throughout the year to bring together old and new friends in celebration and support of our work together. We invite you to join us, especially at our two signature annual events where funds raised benefit our Resources for Excellence Annual Fund. Save the dates and plan to attend our next event!
ECC Retiree Committee
Launched in 2016, the committee promotes connections between all retired ECC employees through active engagement with each other, the college, and the ECC Foundation. In support of the missions of the college and the ECC Foundation, the committee offers educational and social events for ECC retirees, as well as volunteer and philanthropic opportunities from around the college.
Founders' Day Celebration
This annual event is held to commemorate the founding of the college in 1949. The Founders’ Day Celebration also recognizes the distinguished accomplishments of ECC’s students, alumni, employees, retirees, and other community supporters and partners who have been an integral part of ECC’s history and the fulfillment of its mission.
Area golfers look forward to this annual event every June. Following 18-holes at an area country club, this most enjoyable day concludes with a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, awards, live auction, a full slate of prizes and other activities.
Purses with Purpose: Empowering Women through Education
Launched in 2012, Purses with Purpose is a membership-based giving circle that offers community members the opportunity to support other women who want to better themselves through education. Members, guests, and scholarship recipients gather several times during the year for educational and social events.
