Beginning in 2011, the Parkville Area Chamber of Commerce (PACC) selected one charity (through application processes) every year to support both financially and through community support. Over the past 9 years, the Chamber has been able to donate over $73,000 and many hours of community service to those 9 charities. These fund were raised through our "Fund The Need" auction held during our annual Gala & Banquet, as well as the other fundraising events the Chamber sponsors throughout the year.
2020 saw a change in this program as we launched our "PACC Gives Back" program.
The PACC believes in giving back locally and making an impact on a more regular basis with smaller donations ($500 or less). The monthly donation recipient will be chosen from those charities that apply for assistance during the month. We are very proud to support organizations within our community by providing immediate funds to non-profit organizations (through application and approval process) that have a local impact in Platte County.
Qualifications for Donation Approval -
- Organization must be non-profit
- Organization must have a local impact in Platte County
- Organization must have a short-term funding for a specific purpose, need or program (i.e. new computer, scholarship, broken refrigerator, etc)
