White Paper: ROI Fundraising



By their very nature, fundraising campaigns for Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development Organizations differ from traditional philanthropy campaigns in one key regard:  donors do not necessarily experience the “warm glow and satisfaction of helping a good cause” that they get from other nonprofits.  This is precisely why we prefer the term “investor” over “donor.”  And by definition, an investor expects a return on his, or her, investment.

"On behalf of the officers and directors of the Economic Development Alliance, I want to thank you and your staff for the great job NCDS did in helping restructure the Alliance, and for successful management of the fundraising campaign that fully funded our five-year action plan. The NCDS process and format delivered exactly what you said it would do when you met with Alliance members over eighteen months ago. The NCDS process engaged top regional private and public sector leaders and attracted financial support from large and small companies and communities throughout the region."
