Philanthropy builds our community

and it changes lives

East Texas Communities Foundation supports philanthropy by offering simple ways for donors to achieve their charitable goals.

With permanent staff and with the continued vision, energy and leadership of a strong Board of Directors, ETCF has experienced strong annual growth in the last decade. The number of charitable funds, the collective assets in those funds and the grant dollars distributed from those funds have all established positive long-term growth trends. ETCF’s success comes from sound financial management, strong leadership, the flexibility of our donor services and, most of all, the generosity and wisdom of the people of East Texas.

We are a giving people-and supporting the charitable needs of our communities, our region and our world is important to our daily lives.
