Education & Workforce Foundation


The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce Education & Workforce Foundation was created in 1989 as a non-profit (501c3) organization to advance education and workforce development in South Carolina by promoting collaboration and partnerships between the private sector, government agencies, K-12 and higher education. The Education & Workforce Foundation administers programs to advance the education and workforce readiness of South Carolina’s future leaders.

The Foundation supports and runs programs that connect students with business and future careers, and underscores the business community’s strong belief that a well-educated and highly skilled workforce is crucial to the Palmetto state’s prosperity and quality of life for its citizens. The South Carolina Chamber Education and Workforce Development Foundation is administered by an independent Foundation Board of Directors.
