Supporting Joplin Regional Partnership to keep Missouri working

Monday, February 06, 2017

In 2009, National Community Development Services (NCDS) assisted with the funding of Joplin Regional Prosperity Initiative. This group worked to develop greater economic development in the city and surrounding area.

This entity worked effectively with two other states to improve the region shared by Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. A tornado devastated the region and NCDS continued to support Joplin to rebuild. See

Renamed the Joplin Regional Partnership, 4.5 million more was raised recently for continued development and growth for the areas. NCDS was instrumental in creating the fundraising campaign and continues to support Joplin. Learn more at

“As the smaller chamber operating in the shadow of a larger, very aggressive one nearby, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber committed to take its game to the next level.  You and the NCDS team not only drove the creation of a bold new multi-year strategy, you generated buy in and a huge boost in revenue.  A great side benefit of launching and funding a new initiative was NCDS’ identification and engagement of a cadre of new leaders who had never really participated, much less invested at significant levels.  Your methodology works, and your experience in hundreds of other communities paid off for us in a major way.  So much so, we plan to kick off the next multi-year campaign this year.   In my book, NCDS remains the ‘gold standard’ for community development fundraising.”
