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 .

“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.”
