CHAMBER UPDATES
Create an Annual Scholarship
Help Provide critical and immediate tuition support for Milford students

Annual scholarships are established with a gift of $1,500 or more. With an initial gift of $1,500 a donor can have a named, annual scholarship established.
Annual scholarships may be awarded for as many years as the funds are donated.

Our existing named scholarship program is supported by generous partners like Subway, Spectrum Associates, Napoli Motors, Colonial Toyota, Milford Arts Council, Kingdom Life Christian Church, Pantochino Productions, Berchem Moses, and TrinityPoint Wealth.


The Milford Regional Chamber Trust, a 501C3 organization, welcomes donations to establish and name new gift funds as well as donations of any size in support of already existing funds.

Our annual Golf Classic helps fund many of our scholarships, but not all of them. By having a scholarship named after your firm you will truly help round out the program as well as receive the individual recognition you deserve.

Please consider that your contribution helps worthy students begin their college careers that will set the path for their future.

For more information and to establish an annual named scholarship, please
contact Michael Moses at mmoses@milfordct.com


Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce St. Patrick’s Day Float/March

The Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce will be entering a float in the St Patrick’s Day Parade, and we want our members to be a part of it! This event is the largest parade of the year in Milford, so this provides you an opportunity to build tremendous brand recognition and let folks know you support the community!

For just a $200 donation, we will include your logo on our float banner, related merchandise, and space to march along with other business leaders.

This is always a fun event, and St. Patrick’s Day 2023 is sure to be one of the best!

It's not just another gift card!

It’s treating someone to a delicious meal or a really great spa day, even from miles away. It’s a coffee break (or five!) for the students in your life during the peak of finals. It’s a housewarming gift that doesn’t end up in the closet for years unnoticed. It’s a simple way to say Thanks, Great Job, Happy Birthday, and so much more.
Accepted at over 30 hot spots to shop, dine, and enjoy the best of the Milford area.
