Support the Chamber
With your support we will be able to keep our doors open and continue to fight for the business community and Los Gatos.
With every donation of $50 or more, you will receive a Friends of the Chamber sticker, pictured above. Cats come in orange, blue or green.
The Chamber of Commerce, just like every business, is experiencing financial impacts due to COVID-19. Our ability to generate revenue has been greatly diminished due to the protocols necessary to control this pandemic. Despite all of these challenges, we have made our resources, webinars, and public policy advocacy available to the general public during this challenging time. 

If you are interested in supporting our efforts to be a convener and a champion for stronger communities, we would be grateful for your financial contribution of any size. We look forward to continuing to serve our businesses and the community.
The most current information is always on the Chamber website. Click the links below to find out what businesses are open for business - either virtually or open as essential services.
Limited to 20 registrants.
