The work of the TwinWest Foundation goes well beyond the money raised. It's all about helping students realize their educational dreams.
“Throughout the years we’ve been pleased to support the TwinWest Foundation’s efforts of raising funds for scholarship and educational programs benefitting students in the west metro. By providing assistance to learners of many ages – from pre-kindergarten to adult – the TwinWest Foundation is equipping tomorrow’s leaders with the tools they need to succeed.” - Ann Miller, LDI Community Relations
Volunteer Led, Dedication Driven
The TwinWest Chamber of Commerce Foundation is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and is one of the most active and oldest chamber-led philanthropic institutions in the state of Minnesota. Through events such as the TwinWest Gala, the TwinWest Golf Classic, and contributions from TwinWest members, the Foundation supports three major programs:
Kids at Work Early Childhood Scholarship provides pre-kindergarten curriculum funds that support the aims to diminish the achievement gap and prepare young learners for success.
Workforce Scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors, college age students, and adult students in support of continuing education and to strengthen their workforce and leadership skills. These scholarships support two-year degrees to colleges that are members of the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce.
High School Scholarships are available to graduating seniors from TwinWest member schools who will be attending four-year colleges. One $5,000 legacy scholarship is awarded to the student who excels in school work and community involvement.
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.
