Columbia County Chamber Foundation

The primary purpose of the Columbia County Chamber Foundation is to support community efforts in education, workforce preparedness, economic and workforce development, and other programs that support the growth of our county. The foundation provides programs and grants to support the activities of qualifying groups and organizations in Columbia County.

In addition, the Chamber’s Leadership Columbia-Greene program is supported by the foundation, which is a not-for-profit corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. The foundation is also affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce, a 501(c)(6) organization and has its own Board of Directors (listed below) that oversees its operation.
