TeamUp for Non-Profits

Part of our focus at the Chamber is to make sure that we are actively involved in giving back to our community. Each one of us has a responsibility to help those less fortunate and give them a step back on the ladder of success.

That’s why our Non-profit Committee has created TeamUp…Businesses for Non-Profits, an opportunity for you and your company to help one of the more than 90 non-profit members of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce by fulfilling their wish lists.

Simply go to and volunteer, make a contribution, provide in-kind services or come up with ideas on your own. Who knows, you may become the next Chamber Hero!.... Read More >>Click Here
