There are two resources that fuel any organization, agency, or business.  People & money.  While we are always asking for helping hands with specific projects, we find it difficult to ask for operating funds.  Many times, the cash is found out of the pockets of the leadership.  While these gifts are great, they just don't allow for larger projects.  That is where you come in.  We are asking for your financial support.  

The Echo Lake Community group is a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit.  As such, all donations are tax deductible by the giver.  All donations and expenditures are documented by our Treasurer and subject to review.  No funds go towards payroll or for the benefit of anyone in the organization.

Our Mission.

Thank you for contributing.  It benefits the community as a whole and hopefully elevates the quality of life and safety of this community.

The old standbys are still good as gold.   To donate cash or by check, email to make arrangements or for more information.  100% of those donations go towards community programs, events or activities.  

The following options are provided to make it easy to donate.  These payment services do charge a small fee which reduces the amount of your donation slightly.

This payment option allows you to spread out your donation into monthly payments.  Consider donating $3, $5 or more on a reoccurring monthly payment.  For less than a Latte, you would be making a huge difference!   

Your donation goes into the ELCG 'General' fund for expenses such as 501(c)(3) and state filing fees, website costs, and the monthly newsletter.  It also helps with event costs for Trash cleanups, Blood or Food Drives, and Emergency Planning and First Aid classes.  It also supplements the annual Block Party & Artisan Fair to ensure it is a FREE event for the Echo Lake Community.
