SWCC Foundation, Inc.
Supporting arts, education, and economic development in our community
The SWCC Foundation, Inc. is a separate 501c3 entity within the Syracuse-Wawasee Chamber which provides special options for community donations and grant funding to support the Syracuse-Wawasee businesses and community in the areas of arts, education, economic development, and community development.
Special projects include a multi-phased Place Making Plan to enhance the Syracuse Downtown and Village areas. An Arts District, support for the Parks and Trails, business owner building enhancements, and educational opportunities for businesses are just a few of the many special projects the Foundation is working on.
There is so much we can do together to make Syracuse the place everyone wants to be. Join us in our efforts. Check back to see more plans as they develop. You will want to be a part of it, whether it be time, talent, or treasure.
Our latest adventure is the Red Canoe Fund! We are excited to make Syracuse special with red canoes filled with flowers and plants. Please assist us in this venture by donating to the Red Canoe Fund.
