The Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce recently completed our sixth campaign with Funding Solutions and raised over $2.6 million for The Partnership program. We exceeded our goal by over $100,000! Funding Solutions has been our trusted partner for over 27 years.
Funding Solutions is the ideal partner. Their team does much more than raise funds. Their complete approach -- with leadership development, program development and problem solving -- is unequaled.
Our Chamber's decision to partner with the Funding Solutions team has proven to be one of the most important decisions we've ever made. By following their well-managed, comprehensive process, we have experienced unprecedented funding success and now have the capacity to take our organization to the next level. The team at Funding Solutions has a wealth of community and economic development experience. Not only were they great community ambassadors for our organization, but they truly became an integral part of our Chamber team - and still are, long after the campaign.
The Funding Solutions process is the best I have ever seen. Their process creates a sense of ownership by the whole community in what the plan will be. Through their leadership they bring the business community together in a spirit of collaboration that was never achieved before. They are also great guys who roll up their sleeves and work hard to build a plan that makes sense for the community.
The professionals at Funding Solutions bring extensive corporate and leadership expertise to the non-profit world unlike any other firm. They bring passion, devotion and have helped us to fulfill our vision.
