Funds to Support
This new fund allows the residents, organizations and businesses of Erie County to invest in our important work.The GECAC Poverty Fund provides support for the evolving needs of the community, needs that may otherwise go unmet if it wasn't for these generous gifts to support innovative programs, urgent priorities and other unforeseen opportunities that arise during the year. This fund offers flexible support of GECAC’s areas of greatest need, as determined by the Board of Directors.
This fund helps support aging services for the elderly so that seniors can age in place and live more connected, safe and healthy lives.
This fund serves as a resource of last resort for families with emergency and self-sufficiency needs.
This fund provides adults, teenagers and pre-k children with educational resources so that they may improve their lives through employment opportunities and break the cycle of poverty.
