ELK COUNTY-RIDGWAY--The Elk County Community Foundation's (ECCF) mission is to strengthen the region through development, stewardship, and grant-making as donors achieve their philanthropic goal. It began in the late 1990s and incorporated in 2000 as a 301(c)3 organization and continues on each year serving as the management arm of philanthropic funds through the region, all with the goal of improving the life of Elk County residents. The ECCF has donated funding to Ridgway FSG Elementary School for many years, with a special focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Mathematics) education.
