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.

Roger Ramey, Golf Classic Chair

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!
