The Chaîne Foundation

The Chaîne Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 1993 with a goal and a purpose of providing scholarships to deserving culinary and hospitality and oenological students, who will someday be staffing the restaurants, hotels and wineries we enjoy during our Chaîne and Mondiale events.
