Community Partnerships

ECU Foundation volunteers time, talent and resources to inspire and promote greater good across the community.

Featured Partnership:
101 Elite Men

101 Elite Men brings African American men together to support and grow each other so they are equipped to lead future generations of young men through mentoring. Their mission is Vision, Integrity and Purpose (VIP). They live it, and they teach the importance of VIP to all the students they counsel.

Their Major Programs:

  • An ongoing volunteer mentoring program on local school campuses.
  • Black History Month presentations to celebrate and remind students that Black History is American History.
  • 101 Elite Men Summer Camp where these men encourage and shape young campers from underserved communities by providing them with fun and rigorous physical challenges at Ceta Canyon. The kids are taught life and social skills like selfcare, accountability, overcoming fear, and creative expression.

And, 101 Elite Men pour so much more into the community. They provide Back to School support, hold annual events like Real Men Wear Pink (to promote breast cancer awareness and screening) and the Juneteenth Scholarship Banquet. They round out each year with a toy drive benefiting pediatric patients at Northwest Texas Hospital.
