Programs and Services

The Greater Erie Economic Development Corporation (GEEDC) and The Erie Community Foundation proudly announced the establishment of the “We Believe in Erie Fund.” The two nonprofits are joining forces to inspire hope in the Erie community and bridge the gaps of economic and racial divides.

Once the fund reaches the $3 million mark, the “We Believe in Erie Fund” will permanently provide $120K to $150K in education scholarships and apprenticeships each year to minority students. Students who are between the ages of 18 and 25, who want a better life trajectory and who commit to living in Erie will be eligible.
