WHO WE ARE…
Formed in 2017, the GCCC Foundation aims to be a catalyst in improving the economic climate throughout the region and creating a skilled, sustainable workforce. In order to generate a well educated, vibrant workforce, the Foundation focuses on three areas of development:
- Training & Development Grants
WHAT WE DO…
High school students are provided with monetary scholarships to assist with the costs of tuition. They are awarded with the Robert M. Bess Memorial Youth Scholarship and celebrated annually at the Foundation’s Community Service Awards.
The Foundation provides grants to small businesses for employee training along with educational opportunities for certifications and degrees. Grant applications will be available on the GCCC website early this spring.
HOW WE DO IT…
Funding for the GCCC Foundation is generated through donations, grants, and special events such as the Community Service Awards and the Holiday Gala.
Additionally, the Chamber’s Director of Membership & Events, Megan Varrell, will be raising money for the GCCC Foundation by participating in the 14th Anniversary of “Dancing With The Gloucester County Stars”!
