Impact: More Than Money
Arnold Perkins, Deen Tyler, and James Hill participate in The Brotherhood of Elders, which provides mentoring and targeted support to men and boys of color. EBCF created a fund to facilitate their giving.
Sometimes it’s EBCF’s non-monetary support that can make all the difference. Every day we engage with our grantees, our donors, community leaders, elected officials, and others around critical community concerns. Every day—and well into many evenings—our James Irvine Foundation Conference Center is a hub of activity for the community, hosting meetings, trainings, retreats, and celebrations. And beyond the walls of our building, we’re out in the community, connecting with leaders throughout our region on topics ranging from planned giving for nonprofits to confronting suburban poverty.
