Established June 1, 1991, the Foundation raises money for student, adult and entrepreneur scholarship programs. Additionally, the Foundation provides educational programs to members of the Chamber and residents of the communities we serve, many of which are free of charge.
In a typical year, we host our Night at the Races fundraising event in April for the chamber's non-profit Educational Foundation. Because 2020 is NOT a typical year, the event needed to be canceled along with most events across the nation. Still, our organization wants to fulfill the hopes of over 50 applicants who were competing to win a $1000 scholarship this spring.
Every year we raise enough money to award 5-6 scholarships to deserving high school seniors in our community. We also partner with Baierl Automotive to provide $500 trade scholarships year round for qualified applicants.
Supporting our foundation provides youth, adults and entrepreneurs with ability to fund their future and equip them for success.
We realize that many of you have been housebound during this pandemic. During this time, you may have saved money by driving less, missing hair appointments, and dining in more. Would you consider donating the cost of one hair appointment, one dining out dinner, or the money saved from using one less tank of gasoline?
Thank you in advance for your tax-deductible contribution. Your donation will go directly toward providing much needed financial assistance for our next generation of community leaders.
