Hamilton Education Foundation joins the Sussex Area Chamber of Commerce
Sussex, WI – The Sussex Area Chamber of Commerce (SACC) recently welcomed the Hamilton Education Foundation (HEF) as a new member. HEF is a nonprofit organization established in June 1991 by friends and supporters of the Hamilton School District to generate financial support for programs and projects.
The goal of the organization is to enhance, extend and enrich educational opportunities offered to students in the Hamilton School District. With the generous backing and support from individuals, businesses and organizations, HEF has funded more than $1.4 million of educational and cultural grants, workshops, seminars and projects that would not be possible within the regular school budget.
The Sussex Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to count HEF among its more than 100 members. As a business membership organization, the chamber encourages ongoing economic development by creating a positive business environment. The chamber promotes the economic, civic, cultural and education interests of the community through partnerships with members and community leaders.
