    The El Centro Chamber Foundation was established in 2015 to carry out the charitable and education objectives of the El Centro Chamber of Commerce. The voice of business in Imperial County for more than 100 years, the Chamber has been a champion for economic prosperity and quality of life in El Centro and its surrounding areas. The Chamber’s Foundation focuses on furthering those efforts by building partnerships that improve the standards of education and general quality of life and welfare for the citizens of Southern California.

    In the area of education, the Foundation works to ensure that youth have equal access to education and high level job training — resulting in a thriving local economy. The Foundation supports cradle-to-career education and workforce development programming within the Chamber.
