Eastern Connecticut State University Foundation (ECSU
Foundation, Inc.) is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization
dedicated to raising funds to support programs at Eastern
Connecticut State University.
Incorporated in 1971, the Foundation
is directed by a volunteer board of business leaders
and civic-minded friends of the university.
The Foundation raises funds for a
variety of purposes central to the fiscal health and
academic needs of the university. In receiving the majority
of charitable contributions for Eastern Connecticut
State University the Foundation enriches and enhances
the academic quality and reputation of the institution.
Under the leadership of its independent
Board of Directors, the ECSU Foundation receives gifts
on behalf of the University, solicits donations, manages
assets and distributes monies in accordance with prescribed
procedures. The Foundation exists solely for the educational
support of Eastern, but operates independently from
the University under its own tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status.
The Foundation's top priorities include
raising money for the institution's endowment, scholarships,
special programs, faculty development, library, and
laboratories, as well as classroom resources.
During the past two years, assets
have increased 100% and now total over $15 million.
