The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce believes that education is key to the economic vitality of our City. More than forty years ago, the Chamber developed a 501(c) 3 organization to address the needs of public education in Delray.
Beginning in 2018, a Chamber task force re-evaluated the mission and developed an up-to-date vision of the Chamber’s not-for-profit for education, creating an independent board of directors and a new name for the organization –The Delray Chamber Education Fund (DCEF).
The Fund provides a mutually beneficial relationship with the complete range of Chamber activities by leveraging its philanthropic activities with the Chamber’s 900+ members.
Develop, support, and fund a diversity of educational initiatives that helps make Delray learning programs and schools among the top tier in south Palm Beach County.
