Chamber’s annual fundraising campaign a success, surpasses goal

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

RELEASE 14-005

The Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce and the team of Total Resource Campaign volunteers have some celebrating to do this spring break: another successful fundraising operation.

The Chamber's TRC – the annual fundraising venture where member volunteers help coordinate sponsorships for Chamber events and programs for the coming fiscal year – surpassed its $275,000 goal during the nine-week blitz.

"I can't say enough good things about this team of volunteers and the amount of energy they put into helping make this campaign a success," said Sheila Davis, campaign chairperson for the 2014 effort. "Each dollar raised is going back into building up our community, developing leaders, strengthening our workforce and improving the quality of life in Morgan County. This Chamber has a long list of programs impacting each corner of our area, and this campaign will help continue and grow those offerings."

This was the ninth year the Chamber used the TRC model for fundraising, and this year carried the theme of "Chamberopoly" as an ode to the board game "Monopoly." In 2011, the campaign raised $220,275; the 2012 campaign raised $222,417; and the 2013 effort netted $260,744. In the eight years the Chamber has used the TRC model, it has raised $1.9 million for the increasing number of business development, leadership, community building and workforce development efforts of the Chamber.
