West Valley-Warner Center Chamber of Commerce
Community Benefit Foundation
“The mission of the Foundation is to benefit the Woodland Hills and Tarzana Communities at large in the areas of education and beautification.”
The Woodland Hills ~ Tarzana Chamber of Commerce Community Benefit Foundation, incorporated in 2011, is an extension of the West Valley ~ Warner Center Chamber of Commerce. This foundation was created to further the Chamber’s mission. The Community Benefit Foundation has a 501 C3 Charitable Nonprofit status that was created to strengthen our ability to raise funds. These funds have benefited our foundation’s effort to educate our business community and to offer educational events and programs to the youth within our community. The beautification funds are used to increase desirability of the areas in which our businesses are and where the employees and families of these businesses work, live and play.

The Education Committee has a vision to create a better place to learn and work for our community through collaborative efforts with business, community and educators. The Education Committee plans and facilitates important programs annually. Through the “Get Empowered, Get Employed” program local job applicants are educated in social media behavior, branding, resume building and job hunting tasks. In addition we take the lead on educating the community at large concerning legislative issues.
