Your support of the Chamber through membership is a business expense for tax purposes. Did you know that you can also support our programs through charitable giving? Our Endowment Fund is an established fund through Bridge Builders Community Foundations (BBCF). The Fund was established with the purpose of furthering the community, through leadership and educational efforts. Venango Chamber supported programs include Leadership Venango, VenangoREADY, FLEX and Be Here.
You can make a contribution to the fund at any time, but your donation is multiplied when you give during the Week of Giving, March 16-20. Donations of $25 or more can be made at bbcfgives.org March 17-19. Checks of $250 or more will be accepted and should be mailed to BBCF, 206 Seneca St, Oil City in advance of March 16, with a note or memo indicating “Week of Giving – VACC Endowment Fund.”
In addition to our fund, you can support many other Chamber members. Listed below are those who have registered to participate this year.
If your business would like to support the Week of Giving as a sponsor or your non-profit organization would like to register to participate, contact BBCF staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, to learn how to be included next year.
