The Grove City Chamber Foundation was established in 2012 by a group of volunteers from the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce that were passionate about enhancing the educational opportunities of our community. Although the board has changed over the years the focus has not -
we have been able to award over $49,000 to date for area students.
The Grove City Chamber Foundation raises money to give to deserving people for educational purposes. These scholarships can be used toward a college degree, technical training and certifications for career advancement.
The Grove City Chamber Foundation has three categories for scholarships.
- Students that are currently enrolled in a post-secondary program whose primary residence is within the South-Western City School District attendance area, or anyone who has previously received a scholarship from the Chamber foundation
- Graduating high school seniors residing in the South-Western City School District attendance area.
- Employees and Family of Chamber member businesses
Our focus for the future is twofold: to continue to provide scholarships in our three categories and to continue to educate the community about the Foundation. As we continue to grow, we will be able to provide more educational scholarships to the community to assist the development of tomorrow’s business leaders.
