Dec 1, 2022 | Chamber News

More than $465,000 raised and 120 members joined annual volunteer-led campaign

For the 12th year in a row, the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce another successful Moving Fort Collins Forward! Campaign. With help from 40 volunteers on nine teams, Chamber staff liaisons and the support of the business community, the Chamber surpassed its original goal and raised more than $465,000 and 120 members in just 10 weeks.

Started in 2011, this annual fundraising and membership campaign was established to support future Chamber operations, events, programs and initiatives for the business community.

“Year after year, we are so grateful for the overwhelming support from the businesses in our community. They believe in us and commit to our organization so we can continue to work on their behalf,” said Kim Medina, Vice President of Development and Operations with the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce and leader of the campaign “Our amazing volunteers and staff work so hard raising the funds, securing news members, and become that cohesive and strong voice of the Chamber. It’s a privilege to stand alongside such a supportive group.”

The 2022 goal was $420,000 and 100 new members for the Chamber.

“Our campaign co-chairs, volunteers and board members do not hesitate when it comes to renewing this campaign every year. And our businesses, members, and other partners in this community stand behind the work we do,” said Ann Hutchison, Chamber President & CEO.
