Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce  Celebrates Successful Campaign with Victory Party

With a Campaign that broke all previous records, Chesterfield Chamber has funded its programs for the coming year with a Total Resource Campaign, according to Peter Larsen, Chair of the Campaign. Funds raised through the Campaign will be used to fund Chamber programs, events, and publications for the upcoming year. The Chamber works to promote business here in the community.

“Through the Campaign, our volunteers raised $110,340 for Chamber programs,” Larsen said. “I am so pleased to have been a part of this experience. Our Chamber is vital to this business of this community, and these volunteers have been integral to this Campaign.”

Approximately 32 volunteers participated in the Campaign through a six-week process. A Victory Party concluded the Campaign on March 30th and celebrated the success of the volunteers.

In five weeks, we increased our non-dues revenue 15% from last year. We also more than doubled the number of annual sponsoring companies, all of which is even more impressive given and shows the economic vitality of our business community.  We are delighted to have our finances secure for the coming year, which will allow us to focus strategically on programming that is important to our members and providing the return on investment our sponsors have come to know and expect.
