Santa Clarita, Calif. (June 11, 2020) – The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Non-Profit Council announced today its plan of action to bring non-profit leaders together to receive information designed for professional growth, learn about the latest non-profit trends and regulatory issues facing the sector. One of the Non-Profit Council’s goal is to connect our non-profit leaders and local businesses to support each other in achieving their missions.

“We are pleased to showcase the benefits of being part of the Chamber’s Non-Profit Council and what your membership will bring you,” stated Holly Schroeder, Chair of the Non-Profit Council and President & CEO for the SCV Economic Development Corporation. “The objective for our Council is to have a home base for all SCV non-profits to be able to not just store their information but obtain relevant and necessary information for them.”

The Non-Profit Council is open to all non-profits who are members of the SCV Chamber of Commerce. For the remainder of the year, events will be open to all local non-profits. Thereafter, the events will be exclusive to Chamber members.

Our first scheduled event will kick off on June 25 and will be presented by experts to discuss Nonprofit risk management, compliance issues and fundraising during the COVID-19 pandemic. For more details and to register for this event, please visit under the Events Tab.

As a member of the council, you will be provided with the opportunity to join a series of Master Mind events and a public relation campaign to bring awareness to their non-profit. Furthermore, each non-profit will be provided with a PR campaign. The campaign will consist of awareness for the non-profit - what sector the non-profit serves, exposure in the Community Guide, and a platform to showcase marketing material.

Additionally, a coordinated non-profit calendar will be hosted on the SCV Chamber’s website, giving access to all non-profits throughout the community to submit their events. The calendar will work in sync with the current City of Santa Clarita community calendar.

“The Chamber has seen the need for a central hub for our community’s non-profits and offer them a platform to work towards a better future,” stated Ivan Volschenk, Managing Partner for Evolve Business Strategies, which manages the SCV Chamber of Commerce. “Our non-profits play a vital role in our community and we are finding different ways to assist them for their betterment.”
