The mission of the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce Foundation 

is to help drive the economic growth of our State by empowering and sustaining the minority business community through the development of local minority chambers.

How we fulfill our mission

The LCCF supports minority chambers and statewide economic development by providing access to:

• expertise and incremental resources to leverage opportunities for Minority-owned business;

• encouragement and assistance in the start-up of new businesses;

• opportunities for expansion and growth of existing business and industry;

• participation in an aggressive business recruitment program;

• partnering relationships with communities for economic growth;

• expertise in the development of global opportunities for trade and inbound investments;

• cultivation of top regional economic development assets;

• business intelligence to support these efforts.
