Established in 2002, the Salem-Roanoke County Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc. was created to assist the Chamber of Commerce in strengthening the development and growth of the Chamber’s activities. By providing educational scholarships from the business community and assisting in fund-raising for the renovation project of the Carriage House in Longwood Park, the Foundation has emerged as a community leader. Driven by hard-working citizens, business owners, and volunteers, the Foundation has retired the debt from the original $250,000 construction note.  In 2011, the Foundation hosted the note-burning celebration at Longwood Park. The Foundations will grant 4 scholarships to high school students for 2017. For more information and to apply please click the links below.
