Foundation Mission

To promote initiatives that enhance and enrich education and economic opportunities for children and families in the Chamber service area.

It is the intent of the Foundation to provide such organizations with resources to assist in pilot programs, expansion of programs, research, etc., rather than the day-to-day operations of that organization.
