To serve members and women in the community by raising funds to support scholarships for deserving women and girls who aspire to achieve economic success through higher education.
About the Foundation
The Women’s Chamber Foundation is the education and development force of the Chamber whose highest priority is raising funds to support its scholarship program. The Foundation serves its members and the community by raising funds for scholarships and by providing mentoring, leadership, and educational opportunities. Despite women’s gains in higher education, employment, and income, the economic picture today still remains less promising for women than for men. The mission of the Women’s Chamber Foundation underscores the critical importance of supporting women in our community by opening the doors to economic opportunity through advanced education. The Foundation’s goal this year is to award twenty $1000 scholarships to deserving women and girls.
There are many ways to support the Foundation’s scholarship program:
- Attend one of our fundraising events, including the Holiday Luncheon and Annual Tea. All proceeds from the luncheon’s silent auction benefits the scholarship program.
- Support the Big Red Apple Scholarship Campaign. Purchase a little red apple for $5.00 and collect coins or dollar bills. Bring your apple to any Chamber event and fill our big apple with your donations.
- Make a donation. Please contact the chamber administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Your donation is tax deductible.
The Women’s Chamber Foundation’s highest priority is raising funds to support its Scholarship Program.
The 2017-2018 scholarship application process will be held in the Winter/Spring 2017 and winners be selected and notified in late Spring. The annual scholarship luncheon will be held in June 2017.
