Santa Clarita, Calif. (May 15, 2020) – The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber today announced Holly Schroeder, President & CEO for the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation, as Chair for the Chamber’s Non-Profit Council. The Council’s mission is to provide resources for our local non-profit leaders to help them connect, grow, and learn to meet their organization’s mission and goals.

“I am pleased to Chair the Chamber’s Non-Profit Council, especially during this time, to work for the betterment of all our non-profits across the SCV,” said Schroeder. “As we all know, our non-profits are the heart and soul of our community and the Chamber’s Council is designed to ensure our non-profits are fully equipped and supported.”

Holly Schroeder is best known for her leadership as the President and CEO of the SCVEDC. But she is also known as a thought-leader in the non-profit world having successfully led a major Southern California non-profit through a significant restructuring process during the Great Recession.

“Now, more than ever, our community must stand together to support our non-profits during this difficult time and Holly fits perfectly to lead this Council,” stated Nancy Starczyk, Chair of the SCV Chamber Board. “She is an agent of change and can help support our non-profits through this crisis better than anyone we know."

The Santa Clarita Valley has a strong and diverse community of non-profits with more than 100 locally based organizations that help our community thrive. The non-profits in the SCV are a key reason why Santa Clarita is a great community and always looking towards a better future.

“It’s no secret the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world for the foreseeable future and business operations and our lifestyles have altered,” stated Ivan Volschenk, Managing Partner of Evolve Business Strategies, which manages the SCV Chamber. “However, the Chamber is dedicated to supporting our non-profits to navigate through these changes and Holly’s expertise will further expand our knowledge and support.”

The Non-Profit Council is working with the non-profit community to launch a new webinar series designed specifically for non-profit leaders. If you are looking to join the Council, please email or visit for more information.
