Established in 2013 with a gift of $500,000 from the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Community Development Fund is an endowed fund dedicated to supporting not-for-profit organizations located in the Chamber’s five-county footprint.

Not-for-profit organizations that demonstrate a critical role in education, leadership, economic opportunity, and self-sufficiency may participate in an annual grant application process. Grant recipients are chosen by an advisory committee of Chamber members and confirmed by its Board of Directors with assistance from the Princeton Area Community Foundation.

Proposals for grants from the PRCC Community Development Fund are due to the Princeton Area Community Foundation no later than September 15, 2017. Decisions will be announced at the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon meeting on November 2, 2017. A total of $30,000 in grants will be awarded in 2017. Organizations may apply for a grant up to $10,000.
