Chamber Foundation

 We are excited to start a foundation that will help improve our community’s quality of life. Through the Chamber Foundation we hope to see diversity and inclusion, workforce development, and leadership development grow and strive in the Golden Isles.

The Chamber Foundation is a 501c3 organization where all contributions are tax deductible.

“I am thrilled to be part of this new endeavor for the Chamber. Having our own Foundation will make it easier to obtain grants and hopefully, make more contributions tax deductible for our members. I hope that our membership will support and help our Foundation grow for years to come. I am 100% committed to helping make this a reality.”, said Pat Cooper, Chairman. 

One of the Foundation’s board members, Tres Hamilton, expanded by saying, “The creation of this foundation has taken our Chamber to another level. It shows the commitment of this Chamber and its leadership to not only see the gaps within our community, but also be willing to take the leadership in bridging those gaps. The future of Glynn County is bright, and I am honored to be a member of this board.” 

We are all excited about what this Foundation has done for our community and for the meaningful relationships it will create to ensure a brighter future for the Golden Isles.
