Review for Erie Community Foundation, Erie, PA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Erie Community Foundation is a community foundation who distributes funds to non profits through a process whereby the non profit must submit grants under ECF's chosen category of funding.

The Environmental Science Alliance organized a well thought out rain barrel water conservation project. The grant would provide rain barrels throughout the community, and enlist local artists to decorate them.

It was part of a major initiative by the Science Alliance in an effort to broaden and deepen environmental awareness and the role we can all play in conservation.

This grant was denied. This is not the first environmental education that the foundation has denied.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide grants that have a broader and deeper reach for environmental projects that create conservation and preservation awareness, and provide environmental education to our schools and community events.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
