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.

“Birmingham Landmarks, Inc. certainly made the right decision in selecting NCDS to raise the $7 million needed to fully restore our sadly dilapidated and abandoned former vaudeville theatre in downtown Birmingham.  Your firm provided the wisdom and experience to position the project as worthy of support, then structured a winning campaign that was creative, energizing, and relentless in pursuit of the goal.  We were especially appreciative of your flexibility relative to our early cash flow issues, and even more so in the selection of the assigned NCDS Project Executive.  Because of the success and momentum of your phase of this exceptional campaign, the Lyric staff was able to continue seeking commitments utilizing tax credits, and the total raised now exceeds $11.8 million.  Thanks to NCDS, Birmingham can boast of having one of the most spectacularly restored performing arts theaters in America.”
