Calling all donors, grantees, and scholarship recipients! As we launch IECF’s 80th Anniversary celebration, we’d like to share your voices with the community. Your stories can best help us tell others about IECF’s impact on our region.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting video messages from our board members, donors, scholarship recipients, and grantees. These will be short (15-seconds or less) videos you can take on your smartphone or computer using this link.

It’ll take less than 1 minute of your time! Here are the steps:

  1. Click the link and either upload or record a video. (If you’re on your computer, it’ll need to have a microphone and camera. Hold your phone horizontally, if possible, to fill the video screen.) Click Here to Record Your Video
