Batavia Chamber Community Enhancement Endowment Fund

Established 2022

In 2022, the Batavia Chamber of Commerce Community Enhancement Endowment Fund was created to enhance the economic viability of Batavia, Illinois, by supporting charitable nonprofit organizations and activities that enrich the quality of life for residents and businesses of Batavia.

The Batavia Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization that is a business partner to the community. The Batavia Chamber’s purpose is to guide, inspire, and promote our member businesses, delivering valuable resources while building a culture that promotes their ongoing success. The Chamber is a catalyst for business prosperity and economic viability in the community.

By creating the Batavia Chamber of Commerce Community Enhancement Endowment Fund, the Batavia Chamber can make a greater impact on the community and commercial needs of Batavia.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

Marianne Renner

Past Scholarship Recipient & Current Leadership Coach

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
