The Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation (ECFF) provides funding to spread education, advocacy and awareness of boating and water sports safety for adults and children, throughout Connecticut and nationwide. In addition to water-sports safety, the foundation also honors other areas of interest in Emily’s life – by supporting academic and athletic endeavors she was passionate about.

We are so proud of our fundraising progress with Emily’s Chimes and the Chimes Building at Tod’s Point. While there has been some construction and utility planning delays, we expect the project to commence later this year. As a supporter of the ECFF, we thank you for your commitment and patience as we move towards the goal of Emily’s Chimes ringing for all to hear. We will continue to keep you updated on the progress!
