Our Foundation

The TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce (TCACC) Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization established in 2002 to promote community and workforce development in western Montgomery, southeastern Berks, and northern Chester Counties. An affiliate of the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce, the Foundation solicits funds from Chamber Member businesses to support community development and leadership programs. The Foundation also provides funding for initiatives that support the vocational career development needs of the community. The following initiative is sponsored by the TCACC Foundation:

Leadership Tri-County

This program sustains community participation and involvement by training and providing new and emerging business leaders with the expertise to serve on the boards of local nonprofit organizations. Participants attend ten monthly, full-day sessions, each focused on a topic that addresses the needs of the community. The outcomes of the program include class participants working together to complete a project that will benefit the tri-county area nonprofit community. In addition, upon graduating from the program, each participant serves on a board or committee for a local nonprofit organization. To learn more about Leadership Tri-County click here.
