Established in 1987, and reignited in 2017, the Maryland Chamber Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that focuses on the research and educational objectives of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce. We support research on issues important to businesses, including analyses of the Maryland economy and business climate. This research drives solutions in education, talent pipeline, and workforce development. The Foundation focuses on building partnerships to leverage and enhance existing programs, improving the connection between business, education and all Marylanders. The Maryland Chamber Foundation is geared to drive economic competitiveness and success, so that Maryland keeps moving forward.
The Maryland Chamber Foundation supports sustainable solutions that drive Maryland’s future economy including: talent, education, innovation, economic diversity, infrastructure, business climate, governance and quality of life.
Policymakers and the public tend to focus too much on the next four years and not enough on the next four generations. Maryland’s business community needs original ideas to tackle the state’s unique current and future challenges. It’s time to share a new vision for success: an innovative, all-industry, all-encompassing approach that drives, with focus and resolve, toward greater growth.
Maryland is poised to add 500,000 people to its population by 2030, we are asking business leaders, community stakeholders and elected officials:
Are we ready?
We are working to guide the development of cross-collaborative strategies to ensure Maryland is at the forefront of global competitiveness and economic prosperity, attracting and retaining quality jobs, and developing vibrant, sustainable communities. Our programs are designed to stimulate strategic thinking, identify key trends, and engage business and community leaders in each of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City.
