As long as four years ago, data suggested that the “capital campaign” concept in the chamber world had reached the tipping point. Evolving since 1960 when the Metro Atlanta (GA) Chamber launched the first modern “superfund” campaign called Forward Atlanta, the capital campaign has morphed from trend to accepted practice in chamber funding. A 2005 ACCE “Quick Poll” showed that nearly 40 percent of chambers responding had implemented special funding campaigns. The poll further revealed that funds generated from these campaigns accounted for roughly 46 percent of those organizations’ budgets. My current estimate is that as many as 750 chambers have, at some point, launched and funded multi-year programs.
