Seasonal Giving

ECHS has recently opened an Endowment account through the Heartland Community Foundation. We want to invest in the future of the society and our opening deposit was about $3,000. We have five years to reach the $10,000 mark to make it true Endowed Fund. If you feel so inclined to help with this goal the link directly to our fund at Heartland is below. Every size gift makes a difference!
