Giving Tuesday Campaign

‚ÄčWhy We Need Your Support
The Eau Claire Chamber Educational Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supports Chamber educational programs and projects including Leadership Eau Claire™ (LEC), Real Life Academy and Youth Leadership Eau Claire (YLEC). Our foundation's goal is to build the future of our community - many of the Foundation's programs involve younger generations. They are our future workforce, our future leaders, and our hope for a better tomorrow.  

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on December 3rd, 2019 and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

Help kick start our campaign & donate now - all donations received now through December 3rd contribute towards our Giving Tuesday totals!

The Chamber has partnered again with the Chippewa Valley Society of Human Resource Management (CVSHRM) to present the annual Human Resource Conference. We are seeking proposals from individuals who would be willing to volunteer to present a one-hour session on an aspect of human resources. Do you have experience that you would be willing to share? We are looking for topics on a variety of subjects.

Benefits of Speaking
While this is a volunteer opportunity, speakers receive recognition in marketing material and at the conference. All speakers are invited to attend the entire conference as our guest. And best of all, you are able to promote yourself and your business to hundreds of Chamber members. If interested in presenting, please complete this form and return to Kaylynn Stahlbusch by December 20, 2019.
