In 1977, a young Chamber of Commerce executive named Howard Benson saw a need to help communities raise big money for bold initiatives that couldn't be funded through membership dues, sponsorships, or other traditional sources. He founded NCDS, which has helped establish the multi-year strategic initiative and public-private partnerships  as customary and preferred approaches for community and economic development organizations.  Having raised over $1.7 billion in over 700 campaigns, we take special pride in the small part we've played in helping communities of all sizes create jobs, grow their economies, and enhance their quality of place.  As we look forward to serving future clients, we remain true to our original motto of "Helping build great communities, one campaign at a time."  For a few nuggets of wisdom from 40 years of fundraising, take a look at our latest Proview .

“NCDS has been our fundraising firm of choice since they first helped us devise the Forward Sioux Falls operating model in 1987, and raised $1.8 million to implement it.  Not only is the firm exceptionally skilled at raising money, they also understand the importance of generating buy-in and sustained commitment.  NCDS has helped us exceed goal in seven campaigns, the latest of which has a $15.5 million target, and when the current campaign is completed, NCDS will have helped us raise $53 million to fund our initiatives.  Our top community leaders expect the best from our organization, and the exceptional team at NCDS always works hard to help us exceed those expectations.”
