The Fort Collins Area Chamber launched the ninth annual Moving Fort Collins Forward! Campaign, on September 4.
The Moving Fort Collins Forward! 2019 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 now through November 21, more than 50 volunteers on 11 teams, with Chamber staff liaisons, are tasked with raising $575,000 and 100 new members for the Chamber. To reach this goal, volunteers will be raising funds in different ways which include 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.
“The Moving Fort Collins Forward! Campaign is one of our favorite times during the year. We have built a strong and dedicated group of volunteers who truly believe in our Chamber’s programs and initiatives. This campaign gives them the chance to come back together, build deeper relationships and learn more about the Chamber,” said Kimberly Medina, Campaign Manager and Vice President of Development and Operations with the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce. “We are appreciative of our volunteers, our staff and the business community for the contributions they provide in helping us to build a community where business can thrive, and citizens are proud to live.”
