Executive Leadership Foundation

The mission of the Executive Leadership Council (ELC) is to increase the number of successful Black executives – domestically and internationally – by adding value to their development, leadership and philanthropic endeavors throughout the life-cycle of their careers. ELC and The Executive Leadership Foundation (ELF) are collectively responsible for assisting and supporting organizations that are addressing the challenges of producing a pipeline of successful future leaders.

To support these efforts, their Community Impact Initiative provides financial contributions in the form of grants and partners with organizations to improve educational outcomes of Black students and prepare the next generation of leaders. The Community Impact Initiative focuses on Black students from middle school to college. This demographic is a natural extension of ELC pipeline activities and is an area where our investment can have maximum impact.

ELC and ELF and the Community Impact Committee are pleased to formally open its 2014 grant intake process. They seek help in identifying eligible organizations to receive the annual grant.
