  • The Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation is a 501(c)(3) support organization of the Chamber that serves Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County with a mission focused on initiatives in the areas of education, workforce development, quality of life and community development.

    The Foundation has two long-standing programs, Leadership Greater Augusta and Academic Achievers. LGA is an incubator and training platform for developing and nurturing community leaders. The LGA program predates the merger that created GARCC, going back to 1984. Academic Achievers is intended to provide monetary assistance to students as they enter their career development journey whether that be a certification program or a four-year degree.
