About the Foundation

The Harrisonville Chamber of Commerce continues to grow and evolve for the benefit of its members. One example is the formation of a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation in 2008 to support the Chamber’s mission while providing financial savings and tax advantages.

As part of this strategy, in 2021, the mortgage on the Chamber’s headquarters building was transferred to the Foundation, making the Foundation the de facto owner of this historic property on the Harrisonville Square.

Now the Foundation is able to support the Chamber in a variety of additional ways, all focused on enhancing the Harrisonville area business community and providing services to the Chamber’s more than 280 members.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors composed of Chamber members and staff. The board meets monthly.
