MCCC Foundation

The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the formation of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Your chamber of commerce recognizes that a strong business community can only be as strong as the citizens in that community; the citizens can only be as strong as the businesses in that community. It is a symbiotic relationship. Given this vision, The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce will operate for charitable, educational, scientific, and literary purposes to serve our community.

The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Foundation believe in the public education system and the students who attend our local schools.
