John C. Giba Student Leadership Awards Program, Cary Stamp Scholars Fund and Chamber Foundation Scholarship

The Foundation is a private non-profit foundation, affiliated with the Chamber and formed to oversee the endowment established through a donation from John C. Giba, a Jupiter-Tequesta businessman who believed in the importance of student leadership through education. Over the years, The Foundation has grown to provide more scholarship opportunities in our region through a donation from Cary Stamp & Co and donations made by other members of the Chamber. Cary Stamp, CEO of Cary Stamp & Company, donated $3,000 for an additional two students to receive $1,500 scholarships this year.


The John C. Giba Student Leadership Awards Program aims to encourage, recognize, and award selected High School seniors who have demonstrated leadership potential through a combination of academic excellence, community service, and extra-curricular activities. The Cary Stamp Scholars Fund and Chamber Foundation Scholarship awards college-bound seniors who demonstrate leadership potential and have a financial need. The Foundation recognizes students either by video via social media platforms or/and at the Annual Education Awards membership breakfast. Applications become available in January of each year.
