TwinWest Chamber of Commerce Foundation


The work of the TwinWest Foundation goes well beyond the money raised.  It's all about helping students realize their educational dreams.

The TwinWest Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce, is the oldest and one of the most active chamber of commerce philanthropic institutions in the state of Minnesota. The TwinWest Foundation serves the 10-community region in the western and northwestern suburbs of Minneapolis by providing highly sought after scholarships to TwinWest-area high school students through its High School Scholarship program and to adult students through its Career Path Scholarship program.

The Foundation generates funds from events such as the TwinWest Annual Gala, the TwinWest Annual Golf Classic, and from its annual fundraising campaign made possible from the generosity of area TwinWest businesses and individuals.

Reaching Beyond the Recipient
Scholarships are a powerful investment. Students become teachers, doctors, and small business owners – active and positive members of the community. Through a Foundation donation, you will change one life directly and thousands more indirectly.

“Giving to the TwinWest Chamber Foundation has an important local impact allowing donors to see a direct correlation between
the students, our neighborhoods, and the business community. I believe strongly in the opportunity to transform not only the lives of these young people, but also the business community in which we all work.”

John Lavander – Caliber Development Corporation, TwinWest Foundation Designated Donor

Offering More than a Check
A scholarship is much more than financial assistance. It’s a tangible endorsement, a nod of approval, and a belief in the next generation of leadership. Now more than ever, students are seeking assistance to make their educational dreams a reality.

“ Thank you for placing your trust in me by investing not only in my future, but America’s future. I will not let you down. I am honored to have been selected to receive this generous gift. I intend to give back to the community just as you have generously given to me.”
