North East Community Foundation

Planned Giving

Because of the connection between The North East Community Foundation and The Erie Community Foundation, North East residents can now receive the benefits of planned giving.

We have access to the experience of ECF's professional advisors, who administer a number of different trusts. We can also receive income from charitable lead trusts. These planned giving alternatives often create beneficial situations for both donors and local charities. Please contact The North East Community Foundation at 814-725-7107 for more information about planned giving.
