Apply for a Grant: Philadelphia Area
The Boeing Philadelphia Employees Community Fund (ECF) is an organization consisting of voluntary members who are employees of The Boeing Company located in Philadelphia, PA. Funds are collected through payroll deduction and an eight member ECF Board, elected by the membership, administers contributions.
The Boeing Company is not involved in the allocation of funds. However, the Company does support the fund's administrative costs by providing a Company Advisor to the ECF Board. The ECF Board makes final decisions on the disbursement of funds.
Generally, ECF only supports agencies providing health and/or human services to the communities where ECF members reside.
Generally, we do not fund medical research, recreational activity, agency advertising and publicity, tax supported institutions, individuals, cultural organizations, operating expenses (except through United Way), or the replacement of monies already spent.
