To promote initiatives that enhance and enrich education and economic opportunities for children and families in the Chamber service area.
The Foundation is a business community based 501(C)(3) foundation affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, Inc.
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.
The Chamber Foundation Scholarship Program’s mission is to enhance and enrich education and economic opportunities for the region’s rising workforce by providing financial assistance to promising high school seniors in the Chamber service area.
The Chamber Foundation raises funds each year at two events: the Annual Bowl-a-Thon, in its 7th year and Holiday Gala, now in its 35th year.
Using funds raised throughout the year the Chamber Foundation is able to provide grants to local non-profits throughout eastern CT.
