Clarksville, TN: Aspire V campaign nears $4 million

In 1996, NCDS helped create and fund the Aspire Clarksville program.  Since its inception as a $1.6 million marketing fund, this program, thanks to focus and direction from its private sector leaders, has evolved into a comprehensive approach to economic development and has delivered notable wins and progress to Montgomery County.  NCDS' Russ Leach recently concluded his assignment on the Aspire V campaign with a victory celebration announcing almost $4 million raised to date - all from private sources and $200,000 over the goal set last October.  We salute the business leaders in Clarksville who have remained steadfast in their support  of the Aspire program for almost twenty years.  We also welcome new Executive Director Cal Wray to town and wish him well in his leadership of this unique and successful partnership. Learn more about the Aspire Program HERE, and read about the campaign victory celebration HERE.

“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.”
