Mission Statement

The Chamberlain Foundation was organized to receive, maintain and administer funding - including goods and services, time and professional business expertise - for individuals, groups, institutions and organizations that, in the judgment of the Chamberlain Foundation, will:
1. Result in the educational and/or social enrichment of deserving individuals who, without a Foundation grant, would be unable to attain the education they are intellectually capable of achieving, or be afforded the appropriate environment necessary for proper development of character and innate skills. Grants are not limited to individual students; rather, they may also be made to educational and social institutions in order to help provide the funding or the support needed to enable the institution to provide the service that achieves the Foundation's objective. Grants may include individual academic scholarships as well as funding and/or logistics support of educational/social institutions such as private schools and youth hostels/halfway houses.
2. Contribute to an enrichment of the quality of life for the citizens of a community that might otherwise not be possible without Foundation support of such an effort. Grants might include, but are not exclusive to, social and/or educational projects and the like which receive no government tax-dollar funding and, therefore, do depend solely on private contributions for their existence.
