The Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of the Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber. The Foundation provides leadership opportunities and educational programs for our members and the community at large.

Scholarship Fund: awards scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations. The Scholarship Fund is affiliated with the Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber Foundation.


The Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied students who have the vision and the ability to truly make a difference in the world. With a Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber Foundation scholarship, students are able to focus more wholly on their academic pursuits. With the financial burden lightened, they are able to work one less job, avoid going into student loan debt, and involve themselves in community activities.

This is a community effort. We are giving these students the gift of education, and they are giving us a future full of hope and equality. We encourage you to join us in supporting tomorrow’s leaders today.
