ECFA Foundation

Providing financial support for Evangelical Child & Family Agency as it offers compassionate and Christ-centered services to children, families, and individuals.

ECFA Foundation

The foundation was initiated by Henrietta VanDerMolen, who had a desire to see expectant mothers helped through unplanned pregnancies. It was established in 1995 with the goal of endowing $1 million before using interest from the Foundation to help fund the long term needs of ECFA. Today, the foundation is approximately 80% of the way to it’s $1 million initial goal. Our long term plan is to expand Foundation resources in order to fund 1/3 or ECFA’s annual budget needs.

Please pray about and consider how you may be able to support ECFA by helping to fund the ECFA Foundation. Give in any way that the Lord impresses upon you. ECFA will appreciate His leading and your gift.
