WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County Community Foundation (CCCCF) recently announced the creation of a new fund created by the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce (SCCCC). The fund agreement was signed by members of the Chamber leadership and Chester County Community Foundation staff at the clubhouse at Hartefeld National, a premier golf club located in Avondale.

The SCCCC Education & Scholarship Fund will offer education and scholarship funds to graduating high school seniors in the Chamber’s service area: Avon Grove, Kennett Square, and Unionville. This includes Chester County Technical College High School–Pennock’s Bridge Campus. Scholarships will also be awarded to Southern Chester County high school students attending Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW), a week-long action-filled entrepreneurial camp developed by the Foundation for Free Enterprise Education. The Chamber will allocate proceeds from fundraising events and donations to its Education & Scholarship Fund to support this commitment. Scholarships will range from $500 – $1,000.

Cheryl B. Kuhn, IOM, Chamber President & CEO says, “Our Chamber was founded almost 100 years ago and we are delighted by how much we have grown, changed, and adapted to support Southern Chester County’s businesses community. We are proud to be able to formally give back to our local students through educational scholarships. It is our goal to continue to support our local youth who are the future of the global business and non-profit world we live in.”
