The Bellevue Chamber serves as the voice of business on the Eastside, representing thousands of jobs in our community. Education is one of the priority issues for the Bellevue Chamber as we work to forge strategic alliances among the education and business communities. The Chamber has established a separate Foundation to fund these programs. The Bellevue Chamber Foundation awards college scholarships and student enterprises through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.
