ECLC Foundation

Our schools and adults programs are supported by private contributions and grants to the ECLC Foundation, our fund-raising arm, which supplements all of our programs and entities. ECLC would not be the same institution without the generous contributions from our staff, parents and donors. We rely on donations to ensure our students and adult clients will continue to receive the highest level of education and services that will allow them to scale new challenges, push the boundaries and reach their fullest potential in life.

For more information, please contact Development Director, Heather Alonge (973-601-5117), or .

Ways to Give

You can make a contribution to the ECLC Foundation in a variety of ways. Many of these offer substantial tax, estate planning and other financial benefits. However you decide to give, we thank you for your consideration and support! You may also visit our Events page to find out about upcoming galas, fundraisers, and special ECLC events, such as our annual golf outing.

Gifts of Cash

Use your credit card or write a check to make a direct contribution. Using PayPal, you can donate to ECLC online. Even if you are not registered with PayPal, you can pay via your MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express or a bank card. Click the Donate button, and go to the link to the left that says "Don't have a PayPal account?" to continue with your donation.

Donate by Mail

We can accept Visa and MasterCard for credit card donations made by mail or phone. ECLC Foundation, 100 Passaic Ave., Chatham, New Jersey, 07928.


Rather than making an outright cash gift, you may prefer to spread out payments over a period of time that is convenient for you.

Corporate Matching Gifts

An easy way to double or even triple your gift to ECLC! Contact your human resources office to find out if your employer participates in this type of program. If you have retired from a company, you still may qualify for this benefit through your former employer.


If you would like to make a gift of stock, please contact us before the transfer is made. We can then provide you with the proper information to make a transfer directly into the ECLC Foundation account and ensure that you are appropriately given credit.

Planned Gifts

Planned Gifts can help secure the financial future of ECLC. The most common form of a planned gift is a bequest. If you decide to include the ECLC Foundation in your will, please notify us of your intentions, so we can be guided by your wishes in our future planning. Another common planned giving vehicle is to assign the ECLC Foundation as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Contact your financial advisor and/or attorney for advice on how you can take advantage of these and other planned giving vehicles. You can also contact ECLC for additional suggestions and information.

Wish List

ECLC maintains an ongoing wish list of items that would help our schools and other facilities provide better services to our students and adult clients. Please check the wish list page on a regular basis to see if there is an item you would care to support.
