The Board of Directors of the Foundation of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Foundation has been granted 501(c)(3) exemption status, as a public charity. The Foundation has also successfully filed with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Crestview area community; strengthening networking ties; and working toward the best possible future for our area.
Our first project is the funding of the new Foundation of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Vocational/Technical Scholarship. Our goal is to provide a scholarship of up to $1,000 each to each of our three North Okaloosa high schools, for seniors pursuing a vocational or technical post-secondary education. We believe this is a needed addition to the existing Chamber-supported scholarships, in order to make sure that all qualified seniors in our area have a chance to succeed. To fund this scholarship, we are bringing back the Duck Race!
The Foundation is also assisting the Crestview Sister City Organization; they are establishing a scholarship to help qualified students travel to our French Sister City, Noirmoutier.
