The Chaney Foundation awards grants to legitimate charitable nonprofit organizations with an emphasis in the following areas: arts, children and youth; community outreach, culture and history; education; environment; health care and health education. To fulfill this mission, six percent of Chaney Enterprises' overall net profit is transferred to the Chaney Foundation which is then awarded to the organizations. Funds are also donated by Chaney Enterprises employees and are matched 100 percent by the company to be given to the employees' charity of choice. Additionally, funds are also provided by local businesses and through Chaney Enterprises' customer base.

The Chaney Foundation would like to thank all of Chaney Enterprises' employees, customers and suppliers who make it possible to give back to our communities.
