The Sam Cohen ECHO Fund - Every Child Has Opportunities

"When youth call out, please help us respond!"

The ECHO fund helps the Ithaca Youth Bureau to provide scholarships for local youth to attend recreation programs they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. It is maintained through generous contributions from the community. Each year, dozens of families apply for financial assistance for their children to attend programs. The ECHO fund provides a response to their call for help. Contributions may be made out to the Ithaca Youth Bureau ECHO Fund.
