About The Foundation

The mission of the Virginia Chamber Foundation is to strengthen Virginia’s long-term competitiveness through implementation support for Blueprint Virginia. The Foundation conducts research, provides metrics for the state’s progress and produces events on issues facing business.

The Foundation consists of four public policy centers:

  • Center for Business Climate
  • Center for Education and Workforce
  • Center for Trade Promotion
  • Center for Energy Policy

Those who invest in the Foundation play a major role in implementing the goals outlined in Blueprint Virginia and strengthening Virginia’s business climate. Donations to the Virginia Chamber Foundation are fully tax deductible.
