Mon Valley Community Foundation
The Mon Yough Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors established a 501(c) (3) foundation to help support the important programs and initiatives conducive to fulfilling our mission. Starting in 2018, the MVCF has changed our focus to solely provide educational scholarships to students attending high school in the Mon Yough Valley.
We aspire to be the communities of choice for ourselves and future generations - prosperous, a healthy economy, strong businesses, vital neighborhoods, excellent schools, vibrant downtowns, and extensive recreational and cultural opportunities.
The Mon Yough Area Chamber is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation organized to manage and distribute resources in support of chamber initiatives fostering systematic and sustainable solutions advancing economic development, infrastructure transformation and educational opportunities for Mon Valley communities.
RCA Foundation Board of Directors: Scott Biddle, Northwest Savings Bank; Mark Urbassik, KU Resources, Inc.; Robert Macey, Allegheny County Councilman; Connie Yarris; John Palyo, Twin Rivers Council of Governments; and Stephanie DeMaro, Penn State University
