About Us

The Inland Empire Community Collaborative (IECC) is the result of two years of 31 non-profit agencies working together to strengthen our organizations and improve outcomes for individuals and communities throughout San Bernardino County.

Each member organization in the IECC participated in a yearlong capacity building academy (CBA), including ongoing technical assistance and coaching.  Each of the members have a sustainability plan which directly responds to the needs and priorities of our target audiences and local communities.  Funding for this groundbreaking and ambitious capacity building strategy has been provided by First 5 San Bernardino County.  IECC’s fiscal sponsor is The Community Foundation.
