Mission Statement

Elbert County Youth, was re-organized in 1979 as the Elbert County Foundation (ECF). As a rural and distressed county there is a need for funding mechanisms for community development. Elbert County is blessed with many talented and motivated community leaders, but their efforts are restricted by limited access to funding. ECF seeks to assist these qualified endeavors to positively impact our youth by making funds available.

We are currently working with Habitat for Humanity of Elbert County to help build their second Habitat House.
