The new Community Foundation of Alamo is the successor to the Alamo Chamber of Commerce Foundation (ACCF). The ACCF was established as a 501(c) (3) Non-Profit Public Charity in 2009 for the purpose of providing fundraising support for the activities of the Alamo Chamber of Commerce. With the consolidation of the Alamo and Danville Area Chambers of Commerce effective in December, the desire of the Trustees of the Foundation is to continue to support the community of Alamo through this new Foundation.
The mission of the Community Foundation of Alamo (CFA) is to enhance the well-being and quality of life for the people and community of Alamo.
Here is what you can expect in the future:
All funds from the ACCF are being transferred to CFA, except the Scholarship Funds that were transferred to the Danville Chamber, which will continue running the Scholarship Program.
CFA has applied to the State and the IRS to assume the 501(c) (3) non-profit Public Charity status of the former Alamo Chamber Foundation, FEIN 27-1978799.
CFA has taken responsibility for the Alamo Holiday Tree Lighting on December 1st, including the raising of dedicated funds and the organization of the event, and will do so annually.
CFA is the beneficiary of the annual Holiday Party hosted by Diablo Holdings, Ltd, on December 18th, where the $20 admission fee is being dedicated to the Foundation.
CFA is conducting a community Crab Feed on January 31st, and will do so each subsequent January or February to bring together members of the community for social and fundraising purposes, and the present community awards to recognize individuals and/or organizations for outstanding contributions that enhance the Alamo community.
CFA will conduct additional combination social/fundraising events annually at the Alamo Plaza office or other venues, leading to the eventual establishment of a permanent endowment fund to address community needs.
CFA will establish contact with other Alamo service and civic organizations to identify current and future community needs.
