Educational Foundation


The Eau Claire Chamber Educational Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supports Chamber educational programs and projects including Leadership Eau Claire™ (LEC) and Youth Leadership Eau Claire (YLEC).

Many of the Foundation's programs involve our youth, because they will make a difference in the future of our communities. They are our future workforce, our future leaders and our hope for a better tomorrow.

There are the following opportunities for contributions:

$100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more
Friends of the Eau Claire Chamber Educational Foundation provide for the overall administration of the Foundation as well as support unique educational opportunities.
