Moving Fort Collins Forward! Campaign

The Fort Collins Area Chamber and campaign sponsors Blue Ocean and OtterBox will launch their sixth annual Moving Fort Collins Forward! campaign, on September 7.

The Fort Collins Area Chamber and campaign sponsors Blue Ocean and OtterBox will launch their sixth annual Moving Fort Collins Forward! campaign, on September 7.

The Fort Collins Chamber has not raised membership dues since 1999 but continually seeks additional funding to keep the organizations programming relevant and a key resource to its members success. The Moving Fort Collins Forward! 2016 campaign will provide the Fort Collins area with a properly funded chamber of commerce capable of accomplishing key initiatives in the community. The Chamber is dedicated to improving community infrastructure, keeping schools strong, sound public policy, and economic growth, all of which lead to a more successful and vibrant community.

From September 7 until November 17, over 65 volunteers on 13 teams are tasked with raising $550,000 and 100 new members for the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce. To reach this goal, volunteers will be raising funds in four different ways which include memberships, event sponsorships, advertising and budget reductions trades.
