The Edwardsville Community Foundation (ECF) has been serving the communities within the District 7 boundaries since 1997. Since our inception we have facilitated more than $6.2 million to charitable causes. We’ve supported a variety of projects you might be familiar with, such as Ryan Garb’s Gold Star Memorial, the Leon Corlew Park and Splash Pad and The Gardens at SIUE. Most recently, we’ve supported Schon Park in Glen Carbon and Kelan’s Swing in Township Park.
The Edwardsville Community Foundation, ECF, was established in 1997 by a group of local business and community leaders. They founded the ECF to create an organization where people could donate money that would directly impact the quality of life in the local communities.
Why contribute to ECF? You want your charitable contributions to support local charities and concerns. You want to take a positive role in the future of your community. There are many ways to give.
The Foundation was established to provide as many persons as possible the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the future of the Edwardsville area and the quality of life to be enjoyed by all. We are also dedicated to offering many scholarship opportunities to students annually.
The Edwardsville Community Foundation is pleased to announce the Karen Bardelmeier Albrecht Medical Technology Scholarship Fund. Awarded annually, this new scholarship is intended for a graduating high school senior from Edwardsville High School, Father McGivney Catholic High School or Metro East Lutheran High School who lives in the District #7 boundaries.
