The Tempe Chamber Foundation carries out the charitable and educational objectives of the Tempe Chamber that positively impact Tempe’s quality of life. Tempe Leadership is a program of the Tempe Chamber Foundation, and more than 850 dedicated individuals have participated since its inception in 1985. Tempe Leadership also offers the Tempe Youth Leadership program and Tempe Cares.

In addition, the Career Ready Tempe youth workforce initiative in partnership with the City of Tempe aims to help prepare and develop Tempe youth to participate in the future workforce by connecting youth to college and career readiness support and partnering with Tempe employers to provide paid internship opportunities in fields that are in demand. Moving forward, the Tempe Chamber Foundation will also support the workforce development and D.E.I. initiatives of the Chamber and raise funding to address timely needs of our business and collective community. Among those focal areas are our recently established BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Micro-Manufacturing Grant, in partnership with the City of Tempe and Congressman Greg Stanton’s Office; our Minority Women in Business Supportive Grant, in partnership with Wells Fargo; and many others to come. Support of the Tempe Chamber Foundation is aligning with our commitment to ensure economic vitality, a strong workforce pipeline, and installing and sustaining the elements to keep Tempe a great place to live, play and do business. We are excited by the work that lies ahead and the huge impact that our foundation will play in it, and invite you to join us in these efforts.

Onward & Upward,
