Connecting Community – Making a Difference

The El Dorado Community Foundation (EDCF) is a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common concern – improving the quality of life in El Dorado County. Local residents, past and present, turn to the El Dorado Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible.

Utilizing our knowledge, community relationships, and administrative resources, we connect people who care with causes that matter. Individuals, families, businesses and organizations create permanent charitable funds that help sustain the health of our region. The EDCF pools, invests and administers these funds. We then use the earnings to award hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants each year to many of the humanitarian, educational, and cultural organizations in this remarkable area we call home. The El Dorado Community Foundation has returned more than $13 million to the community since it was established in 1991.

The EDCF is proud to provide flexible ways to affect the positive change our donors desire to see. The opportunities are endless! The El Dorado Community Foundation is a designated nonprofit organization as determined by the IRS. To learn more about the work of the EDCF, visit our website at www.eldoradocf.org
