Why a Future Forward Campaign?
Since 1913, the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce has served as a valuable entity for our community. Providing businesses with the resources necessary, including advocacy, professional development and valuable networking opportunities, we have contributed to a strong community, strong schools and services, we want to continue that legacy.
In order to better serve you, our Members, we need to upgrade our antiquated technology, including client management system, website, communication systems, hardware (most computers are refurbished and often crash), and improve and update our conference room.
As a 501 (c) (6) , our only revenue comes from Memberships and our events, we do not receive money from any other entities. Therefore, this one time effort is designed to build up our administrative tools so that we can continue to be a relevant resource in our community.
Through a survey we conducted last year, we learned that the NACC generates between 40 and 120 million dollars in Naperville both directly and indirectly. Further, our Members are 94% more likely to spend their personal dollars with other Chambers Members vs. non Chamber Members. That’s an incredible impact.
We can’t do this without you. We need your help so that we can continue to serve the current and futures leaders in our community so that the businesses continue to thrive right along with our community. A strong business community = a great place to work, live, dine and play. We hope you’ll assist us in making our goals a reality so we can do the same for you.
