Community Outreach

ECHO Community Outreach Funds are special funds in select communities with large employee populations. ECHO accepts grant requests from local nonprofits to meet critical needs in these communities. Led by employee volunteers, a committee from each community reviews and awards grants based on available funds. Employees can select to allocate some or all of their ECHO funding to a local outreach fund, which in turn is pooled with other employees’ funding.
