Turkey carving, Christmas lights, and New Year’s Eve plans are sure signs that the year is winding down. While you enjoy time with family and friends and consider ramping up your efforts to give back to those in our community who are most in need, we hope you’ll remember the Greater Phoenix Chamber Foundation.

The Foundation appreciates your support and invites you to reflect on the impact we’ve made together in 2021 on those working and living in the Greater Phoenix region.

Through its workforce collaboratives, the Foundation helped address our community’s growing skills gap by preparing Arizonans for careers in Advanced Manufacturing, Construction, Cybersecurity, Financial Services, Health Care, and Information Technology, and connecting them with Arizona’s top employers.

“The Foundation’s program gave me the basic understanding essential to networking, getting hired, and starting off on the right foot in my new career.” – Benjamin Stafford, Merrill Edge

ElevateEdAZ, the Foundation’s education initiative prepared high school students to pursue college and career opportunities by connecting teachers to Arizona business and industry leaders to create a classroom curriculum and real-world experiences that offer students exposure to the workforce.

Wellness AtoZ, the Foundation’s Wellness initiative provided invaluable resources to employees and employers throughout the pandemic to help make Arizona and the Greater Phoenix region known as a destination leader for healthy talent and healthy communities by providing workplace wellness programs with free health and wellness toolkits.

“Hands down, Wellness AtoZ’s WorkWELL events have been the most valuable networking resource for making connections and learning more about corporate wellness challenges and progress in Arizona. I can directly attribute revenue; media mentions and creative campaign ideas to interactions and conversations Wellness AtoZ made possible.” – Susan West, Local Business Owner at M2 Wellbeing

The Foundation conducted data-driven research on public policy, economic impacts, and community issues to inform policymakers, business leaders, and the public with powerful information they can use to best address and serve the needs of our community.

Throughout this challenging year, despite the pandemic, the Foundation’s charitable activities continued to drive economic prosperity for our region. See the results yourself in our 2021 Foundation Annual Report!
