Foundations financial services is responsible for proper financial reporting and management for each of the 3 foundations associated with ECU (including their affiliates and subsidiaries), as well as for the ECU Alumni Association.

These entities provide services and resources to students, student athletes, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and other “friends” of the University.
