Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarships Benefit Students
The Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce for over twenty years has invested in future Hoover generations and has given out more than $200,000.00 in scholarships throughout these years. The Hoover Area Chamber established a 501 (c )(3) non-profit charitable foundation in 2016, so anyone who wishes to make a contribution to the scholarship fund can take the full amount of the contribution off their income taxes – both state and federal income taxes.
Our Mission – Serve as the catalyst for economic growth by fostering cooperative partnerships and advocating for our stakeholders.
Our Vision – Be the leading community with thriving businesses and top talent, while advancing diverse and equitable opportunities for all.
The scholarships awarded by the Hoover Area Chamber are a way that our membership reinvests in our community. We are looking for individuals that have participated in or benefited from Commerce from the Hoover Area. As our above Mission Statement reflects, networking with others and supporting local Chamber businesses is what we are all about.
When choosing a student for this scholarship we will be looking for someone who is looking to better the community in which they live through their future aspirations of higher education and entrepreneurial spirit.
