The Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce Foundation assists the Vestavia Hills Chamber with the mission to “foster, promote, advance and improve the economic, civic, education and general business conditions of its members and the Vestavia Hills community.”  A very visible and important component of this mission is to foster and promote the development of future leaders.

The Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce Foundation was incorporated on June 8, 1992 and has since focused on projects benefiting the Vestavia Hills community. The Foundation offers an annual college scholarship to a Vestavia Hills High School Senior who plans to major in Business or a related field.

The Foundation signature fundraising event, Viva Vestavia: A Taste of Vestavia Hills, supports the important initiatives of the Foundation and showcases the city’s restaurants to attendees.
