2020 Employee Ownership Month Funding Drive

Thank you for supporting the Employee Ownership Foundation’s first-ever virtual fundraising drive, during October’s Employee Ownership Month. Employee Ownership Month was a tremendous success, raising over $225,000 from hundreds of individuals and companies across the country.

Your Donations fund all our efforts

As a recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, The Employee Ownership Foundation relies upon the generosity of employee owners and their advisors to fund its programs and research.  Each year, the Foundation spends between $400,000 and as much as $800,000 supporting valuable research, promoting Employee Ownership, funding scholars through academic fellowships, and sponsoring important education initiatives through symposiums and conferences.  Many of these efforts have provided invaluable background and insights for public policy makers at the local, state and federal levels.

The COVID pandemic has deeply impacted the way the EOF usually raises funds.  Because in-person live meetings could not take place, the EOF relied on Employee Ownership Month as an opportunity for our supporters to continue their support with a month-long fundraising drive to ensure the Foundation had the resources necessary to run our full programs in the year ahead.
