The Mission of the Irving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation is to provide educational materials, scholarships and mentoring to the Hispanic Community. The IHCC Education Foundation is dedicated to charitable, scientific, educational and social purposes, including raising funds for student scholarships, organizing meetings or informational seminars, and providing other resources for youth and adult students.
The IHCC Education Foundation is in need of funding for youth development classes, which are designed to teach high school and college aged students professional and personal leadership skills. IHCC Education Foundation also plans to begin an annual college fair day for Irving students in Dallas County. IHCC Education Foundation is also seeking funds for scholarships for both youth and adult students.
We were able to award our first 2, $1,000 Scholarships, to 2 graduating seniors in Irving ISD this year.
Our program has graduated over 65 students in the last year, in the Entrepreneurship program and awarded certificates of completion. We are continuing these classes with the partnership of the IrvingISD.
Rony Perez is one of this year’s scholarship winners. Rony will be attending UNT in the fall and majoring in Film. Christopher Banda was also another winner, he will be attending UNT as well and majoring in Business
North Texas Giving Day
Thank you Donors!! Our goal this year was to raise $5,000 for the IHCC Education Foundation. We over doubled our goal by raising $10,837, that total did not include the amount matched by Communities Foundation of Texas. Thank you to everyone who donated, we greatly appreciate your support!
This year, on Thursday, September 20, 2018, the IHCC Education Foundation is participating in Communities Foundation of Texas’
10th annual North Texas Giving Day, a one day online giving extravaganza for our whole region.
Last year Communities Foundation of Texas brought together more than 2,700 organizations to raise $39 million, and we are excited to be a part of the movement this year! Since its founding in 2009, North Texas Giving Day has inspired people to give, resulting in increased donations and services provided
in North Texas. We invite you to join the movement and help us reach our goal of $5,000 on September 20.
