In November, IECF received some special news – the Foundation has been selected as “Nonprofit of the Year” by Inland Empire Economic Partnership (IEEP)! The award will be presented during IEEP’s 10th annual awards virtual ceremony on January 14, 2021.

“We are honored for this recognition from IEEP,” said Michelle Decker, IECF CEO, “and we really accept this award on behalf of all the nonprofits in the Inland Empire who have tirelessly continued to serve their communities. We grew a lot this year to meet the demands out there. The journey isn’t over, but we learned and responded, in partnership with many, especially new partnerships with our business community.”

IEEP’s annual dinner and awards ceremony recognizes individuals and organizations that have demonstrated leadership in improving the quality of life and the business climate of the Inland Empire.

Thank you, IEEP!
