Escondido Charitable Foundation (ECF) members marked another landmark year in grantmaking in 2015 as the nonprofit awarded more than $168,000 at its recent grants celebration at Classical Academy High School. This comes just one year after ECF announced more than $1 million dollars granted to nonprofits since its inception.

The 2015-16 grant cycle focused on programs that connect, protect or increase access to the rich natural resources and open spaces throughout Escondido.

Watch the video below to get an inside look at how these programs are helping Escondido residents:

ECF provides funds annually to community organizations and causes, and more importantly gives community members a vehicle for legacy planning and gifts that will benefit Escondido now and forever.

In just nine years, ECF has supported 53 nonprofit programs to help make Escondido a better place to work, live and play.
