An initiative of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is working to strengthen America’s long-term competitiveness. We educate the public on the conditions necessary for businesses and communities to thrive, how business positively impacts communities and emerging issues, and creative solutions that will shape the future.

We founded The Civic Trust® to promote a broad range of efforts aimed at improving understanding of and involvement in American civic life. We recognize the importance of democracy to national prosperity and know business has a role to play in strengthening it. With efforts like the National Civics Bee® and other programs, we’re dedicated to advancing and promoting civics knowledge in schools, workplaces, and communities.

The Civic Trust® is energizing and modernizing America’s civic life by changing the conversation and perception of civics in classrooms, board rooms, on social media and through other platforms. We actively support and engage leading national and local stakeholders in areas like civic literacy and civics at work.
