Chamber Launches 10th Annual Fundraising and Membership Campaign

Sep 23, 2020 | Chamber News

The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the launch of its 10th annual Moving Fort Collins Forward! Campaign.

From now through November 19, more than 40 volunteers on 11 teams, with Chamber staff liaisons, are tasked with raising funds and new memberships for the Chamber. To reach their goal, volunteers will be raising funds through memberships, event sponsorships, advertising, initiatives and budget reduction trades. Started in 2011, this annual campaign was designed to strengthen financial resources to continue to broaden the value and effectiveness of the Chamber membership, advocacy, services and programs.

“As a not for profit, the Chamber relies heavily on the funds raised during this campaign. Especially this year, we cannot thank our volunteers enough for returning and being committed to a successful campaign,” said Kimberly Medina, Campaign Manager and Vice President of Development and Operations with the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce. “We know these are challenging times, the Chamber is here to support your business and continue to work on recovery to help build a community where business can thrive, and citizens are proud to live.”

Returning for the third year are 2020 campaign Co-Chairs Deb Kelly (Independent Financial) and Mat Dinsmore (Wilbur’s Total Beverage). The 2020 Vice Chairs are Gerry Agnes (Elevations Credit Union), Gene Bocis (Anheuser-Busch), Connie Dohn (Dohn Construction), Margo Karsten (Banner Health), Brett Kemp (Flood and Peterson), Kevin Unger (UCHealth) and Bob Wilson (Columbine Health Systems).

Campaign Teams: Banner Health, Brinkman Partners, Columbine Health Systems, Elevations Credit Union, FNBO, Flood and Peterson, Independent Financial, Markley Motors, Red Carpet Ambassadors, UCHealth, Wells Fargo, Wilbur’s Total Beverage
