It's Time to Get Into The Game!

Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation Business and Education Partnership were founded as the Alliance for Bay County Schools and links businesses with the Bay County educational system. Both the Bay Area Chamber businesses and the representatives of area school districts work together to provide opportunities for our area students. Without sponsorships and financial gifts this partnership cannot exist.


Education is a valuable tool that will make the students in our area better citizens and as it becomes a necessity in our lives, area businesses have a chance to become involved. Programs provided by the Business and Education Partnership bring students, educators, and the people from the business world together, giving everyone the ability to learn from each other. Listed below are programs that are funded by the Business and Education Partnership.


DowGives

The communityGives component of DowGives creates an opportunity for Elementary, Middle School, and High School age groups, sports teams, and service clubs in the Great Lakes Bay Region to earn funding for priority projects through volunteerism. This is accomplished through the giving of grants to K-12 aged groups that complete a preapproved community volunteer activity and meet grant requirements. 


By promoting volunteerism amongst today’s Elementary, Middle and High School aged youth, communityGives emphasizes the importance and value of community engagement to our region’s youth, and promotes a sense of community, along with a desire to give back. Youth groups can earn $500 for their programs while giving back to the community.
