The East Liverpool-Fawcett Community Foundation has launched its first-ever website (TheFawcettFoundation.com). The EL-FCF, which serves East Liverpool and surrounding communities, was launched in 1992. It is governed by officers and an 11-member board. The website enables area residents and groups to apply online for funding via email, eliminating the need for paper applications. Though applications are accepted year-round, the deadline each year is July 31. Applications which arrive after this date will be tabled until the following year’s meeting. This year’s annual meeting will take place 4 p.m. Sept. 18 at the downtown East Liverpool offices of Attorney Jackman S. Vodrey.

Current EL-FCF investments total around $750,000, up from $12,000 when the foundation was launched 27 years ago. The website was designed by Catherine S. Vodrey (EditOrganize.com).
