Boeing Employees Community Fund Spotlight

Food Lifeline is proud to be the recipient of funds from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound to go toward the Hunger Solution Center.

One of the largest employee-owned and managed funds of its kind in the world, the Employees Community Fund (ECF) of The Boeing Company has been empowering employees to make greater impact by pooling their tax-deductible donations for more than 60 years. Employee advisory boards provide combined employee donations to nonprofits in their community through ECF grants. Boeing pays all administrative costs so 100 percent of every employee dollar helps strengthen local communities. Food Lifeline is proud to be the recipient of funds from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound to go toward the Hunger Solution Center.

“Nutritious food is one of the most basic human needs, and helping our neighbors who lack food security has always been a primary concern of the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound (ECF). In our efforts to help bolster food security in the Puget Sound region, we immediately realized that helping fund the Hunger Solution Center would be a high impact investment on the part of the ECF members, given the enormous capacity increase Food Lifeline will achieve once the Center opens. ECF members also recently helped fund the expansions of the Thurston County and Bellingham Food Banks, and the Hunger Solution Center will help these two wonderful agencies achieve their capacity building goals.

Boeing employees have supported Food Lifeline virtually since its inception, both with volunteer hours and with financial contributions. Since 1980, ECF members have donated nearly $1,000,000 to Food Lifeline in support of its mission ($979,645).”
