|Mission: To provide financial support to charitable organizations in Chester County that seek to build a stronger society by improving the health and quality of life of children, women and families facing economic, educational, social and medical challenges.
With funding continuing to decrease, nonprofits struggle to provide their services to an increasing constituency of underemployed and underprivileged neighbors. The economic downturn has affected every level of nonprofits. The Elite Companies Charitable Foundation finds it purpose strengthened by the greater than ever need for grants. Grants offer a boost for non profits that do not have the time or means for additional fundraising events or campaigns. ECCF and its Board strive to assist Chester county's nonprofits so that they can continue running their programs to aid women and families.
Since its inception in 2005, The Elite Companies Charitable Foundation has awarded over $385,000 to charities serving Chester County. The Naylor Family invited business associates to form a board and organize the structure of the Foundation. The Foundation achieves the goal of “Turning Hope into Reality” through two grant giving cycles each year.
The Elite Companies Charitable Foundation was founded by Russell Naylor, President and Founder of the Elite Companies. The Elite Companies started in 1985 with Elite Brokerage Services, Inc. and are family owned and operated. The headquarters are located in Malvern, PA. ECCF was founded by Russell Naylor and became operational in September of 2004.
