Who We Are

The Chamber delivers a robust roster of events, programs and initiatives designed to enhance business opportunities and economic success. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we created the “The Chamber Cares Initiative” in which a simple question was asked of our businesses and community: “How can we help?” The purpose continues to be a way for the community to come together to discuss its needs and priorities, to provide direct assistance and/or leverage excess capacity; to lend support, bolster morale, and ensure that the community has a place to share their experiences, hardships and opportunities extending the reach and impact of each through connections with all in Foster City and with partners in the region. Our tag line, “Your Chamber Cares” remains a testament of our commitment to the community.

The Chamber’s work is focused on three pillars of prosperity: advocacy; business development and economic development.  From weekly roundtable discussions, to “Ask Our Expert” sessions with local professionals, to one-on-one consulting, the Foster City Chamber uses its collective resources and connections to champion bold and innovative initiatives that make Foster City stand out. No other organization provides the level of leadership and action to advance sustainable economic growth and champion a better Foster City for all those who live, work and play in our city and region.

Community Is Our Business

The voice of over 600 businesses and nearly 20,000 daytime employees, the Chamber is here to support local business, promote commerce and cultivate a vibrant economy. The network of affiliates, nonprofits and partners include businesses and professionals of all size and type, both within Foster City and throughout the greater region. Together we are strong, and we are proud to serve our community.
