What

Our work drives economic prosperity

The Foundation’s Research and Policy team informs business leaders, policymakers and the public on issues critical to the state’s success. Our A for Arizona education initiative works to expand access into the state’s best ‘A’-quality public school models, especially those serving primarily low-income students. Chamber Business News, our newest initiative, is a digital media platform that delivers insider information, engages newsmakers, and addresses statewide issues that drive Arizona toward a brighter and more prosperous future. We work in partnership with the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry to accelerate the priorities of the business community.

Arizona has added over 160,000 jobs since 2015, and is projected to add another 150,000 jobs in the next two years.

The Board of Directors support and guide the research and initiatives of the Arizona Chamber Foundation.

Members are made up of committed and passionate leaders throughout Arizona’s business community.
