  • The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce has partnered with community business leaders to create the THRIVE Winter Park initiative. THRIVE Winter Park is a hyper-local charitable response to the financial impacts of COVID-19 on residents and small businesses in Winter Park to enable and accelerate the city’s recovery after the pandemic. If you would like to donate, click here.

    THRIVE Winter Park is housed at the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce’s 501-c-3 foundation and is designed to fulfill three goals:

    1. Meet immediate needs in our community, such as buying meals from local restaurants to be delivered to frontline hospital workers
    2. Evaluate emerging needs and build recovery models
    3. Build capacity for a robust recovery
