Local banks donate to TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation
POTTSTOWN - The TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation Inc. was recently presented with donations from First Priority Bank and Susquehanna Bank.
The TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently received its renewal as an Educational Improvement Organization (EIO) through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. The TCACC Foundation is approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to receive monies from business under Act 4 of 2001, which amended the Public School Code to authorize tax credits for businesses that make contributions to EIOs. The TCACC Foundation focuses on community development and leadership programs.
Being designated as an EIO allows the TCACC Foundation to fund vocational career development programs for chamber member public school districts. Established in 2002, the TCACC Foundation is a nonprofit organization that benefits K-12 students in portions of Montgomery, Berks and Chester Counties. School districts benefiting from funding include: Boyertown Area School District, Owen J. Roberts School District, Pottsgrove School District, Pottstown School District, and Spring-Ford Area School District.
Chamber Member Companies can contribute to the Foundation's EIO program by providing training, career information, resources, and/or monetary donations.
