Ways to Give

GECAC is passionate about ending poverty. GECAC invests in individuals and their families who are striving to develop their skills. We have established programs that provide the resources needed to break the cycle of poverty, be self-sufficient and achieve financial independence.

The work we do is for the health, safety, education, and financial stability of every person living in poverty throughout Erie County. But we cannot help people and change lives without you! There are so many ways to help people in need—choose the way that works best for you.
