The Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the Dr. Candace Vancko Grant is launching for its second year. This matching grant program was created to help strengthen the connection between the Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce business community and the population of SUNY Delhi.
The grant honors the dedicated service of the former SUNY Delhi President, Dr. Candace Vancko. Dr. Vancko served in the position for more than 15 years and was committed to bridging the businesses of the area to the student, faculty and staff population at the college.
The grant is an annual matching grant of up to $500 that the Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce will award to a member business that is ready to invest into their business with the purpose of directly impacting the student population of SUNY Delhi. This can take many forms, such as adjusting inventory, adding an attraction, or offering a new service with the primary focus of better serving and connecting to the college population.
Grants will be judged by an impartial group that will be made up of two professionals from SUNY Delhi and two board members from the Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce. The Dr. Candace Vancko Committee is happy to help develop applicants’ ideas.
