The Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce understands that many members join for a sense of giving back to the community. This seems especially appealing to our future millennials members who have grown up with the experience of participating in volunteerism and outreach. We provide many opportunities from volunteering at community event or through direct participation with our Non-Profit members.
Education Foundation: In January of 2006 the Chamber of Commerce with other partners formed the Tampa Bay Chamber Education Foundation. The Chamber and its member businesses have demonstrated a strong commitment to our local schools: sponsoring classrooms, honoring students, awarding scholarships and showing our appreciation to the dedicated educators who teach our children.
In addition to the scholarship program, the Foundation sponsors a number of other programs and projects designed to reward and inspire our community’s outstanding young scholars. Because you care about the future of our community, we invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of our future leaders. Your contributions will help fulfill the dreams of deserving students who might otherwise lack the resources to pursue those dreams. Visit www.utbef.org for more information.
