We want to start by saying thank you!
Thanks to you, we launched the Austin Young Chamber of Commerce Foundation this year to help the millennial workforce have the resources and access needed to be successful. Your support has helped fuel our vision more than we could have imagined.
The Austin Young Chamber Foundation invests in the development of Austin’s young professionals by connecting them to opportunities that spur growth, encourage community engagement, and inspire leadership. The purpose is to support the Austin Young Chamber and the young professional community as a whole by allowing for greater collaboration, education, and opportunity to create more success for our future leaders.
The Foundation is pleased for you to be among the first to know that its first major initiative is the launch of a scholarship fund. This fund will be for both individual young professionals seeking financial assistance for engagement opportunities, as well as for other institutions seeking support to fulfill their missions. Austin Young Chamber Foundation is dedicated to supporting young professionals in the Central Texas area who demonstrate the values of engagement and leadership that Austin Young Chamber Foundation was founded upon. If you would like to share this opportunity with others or apply yourself, more information on the application process can be found online.
Austin Young Chamber Foundation has more exciting announcements coming – including our recent commitment to become the presenting sponsor of the Austin Young Chamber’s State of AYC Annual Meeting. The Austin Young Chamber Foundation Board is also starting to discuss and plan other innovative ways to connect and empower our growing community of young leaders. We are always open to hearing your ideas and feedback!
Your support makes it possible for us to do the impactful work we are doing behind the scenes to remove barriers that create generational change and encourage young professionals to become community leaders.
Thank you so much for everything you do; we hope you will join us at the State of AYC Annual Meeting on Friday, February 17th at the Westin Downtown!
