Making a Difference

The French-American Chamber of Commerce Chicago Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 that connects our members to the  local community through scholarships and training opportunities.


The FACC-Chicago Foundation’s mission is to build a diverse generation of young professionals prepared for the global jobs of the future by supporting access to higher education for young people in need.


The Foundation offers scholarships to select Chicago high school students interested in French language and culture seeking to pursue a technical, pre-professional or traditional four-year college degree. The Foundation will also facilitate training and learning opportunities within the FACC-Chicago network.
