Many ways to support ECN

As a volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit organization, ECN relies on community support to make our programs a reality. Do you want to do something that makes a positive difference in the Elkins community? We have many ways for you to get involved including donating time, resources/talent, and direct financial support.

All support efforts will go towards engaging, empowering, and enhancing our community through more events, a bigger and better website, wider newsletter distribution, growing our business network, developing our community leaders network, and more.

Financial Support

Even when talking about financial support, there are many different ways to support Elkins Community Network.

Buy a Center Street Bridge Shirt or Mug

Show some Elkins pride and help us raise funds in the process. Thanks to The Rustic Cub's Nichole Williams for creating such an amazing design!

Direct donations

All donations are tax-deductible. We've made it easy to donate specific amounts using a debit/credit card below!

Sponsor our programs

We love to collaborate with area businesses as sponsors for our community events and by highlighting their role in our community through our newsletter ads and other sponsorship opportunities.

Volunteer with Us

One of our biggest needs is always volunteers giving their time and talent. Do any of the below ideas appeal to you? Please contact us!

Monthly newsletter

We do a monthly newsletter that involves writing, seeking business sponsors, and distribution.

Event planning

We have a lot of events in the works for the coming year and need help planning them. Do you have a knack for community events including seeking sponsors, coordinating details, and helping with marketing?

Growing directories 

We have created directories for our local businesses, worship centers, youth organizations, resources, and nonprofits on our website. All of these are free! We need help getting more entries to make them complete by contacting missing directory members and offering to help them fill out the form (or encouraging them to do it themselves).

Writing blogs/other communications materials

We would love to grow the blog on our website to include more information, tips, etc. But we need your help! Do you like coming up with ideas and writing about them? Or perhaps taking an idea we send you and doing the research and writing it?

Create initiatives

Do you have a program that you think would be a good fit for Elkins Community Network? We love ideas, but need people to help bring those ideas to life! If you have an initiative or program that you think would be a good thing for the community, please contact us to discuss!
