The Foundation

In 2020, through the financial and administrative support of the St. Landry Chamber,  a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization was formed, the St. Landry Chamber Foundation. This new organization was developed to serve the community at large through initiatives focused not only on economic development but the strengthening of our public welfare and growth. The  Foundation partners with the St. Landry Chamber of  Commerce, as well as its members, to develop programs associated with professional development, community service, community development, beautification, and much more. We ask you to join us as we begin this journey through participation in our upcoming programs and initiatives.
