    A little about us...

    The strength of the Emerald Coast Foundation is its ability to achieve its mission: ECF is committed to “Investing in Youth” in Northwest Florida. This capacity is encapsulated in a number of fund raising activities that take place throughout the calendar year. The largest is the Emerald Coast Poker Run, held in August each year.
    The Emerald Coast Foundation is the only not-for-profit organization that puts forth such effort, for the sole purpose of expanding its charitable reward and helping our most precious resource: the children of our community. To date, we have raised over 2 million dollars for our causes.
