The Central Palm Beach Community Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, established to present opportunities for philanthropic giving to the business community. It is a 501(c)3 organganization.
The mission of the Central Palm Beach Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the area we serve through charitable giving and by providing a facility where community, not-for-profit and business groups can meet in order to exchange ideas.
Through a series of events, the Chamber’s members and business community combine resources to improve the community and the lives of individuals in it.
Annual events sponsored by the Foundation include:
- The Community Fitness Run, which each year supports a charity of the Chamber’s choosing. In past years, the annual fall event has benefitted Hospice of the Palm Beaches.
- The school bands portion of the Annual Parade, which raises money to provide annual scholarships to school bands and individual high school seniors.
- The Women of Worth Stiletto Awards, recognizing women who have demonstrated leadership in their businesses and community.
