100+ Years of
Combined Fundraising Experience
First Community Development is a fundraising partner to organizations across the Southeast and has a proven track record.
As the “Voice” of local business, Chambers are uniquely positioned to drive economic growth and shape the future of their communities. FCD will guide your Chamber through the process of identifying key strategies that will help your community take the next step forward. A campaign for your Chamber will allow you to fund an extraordinary vision through revenues above and beyond your current dues payments.
Fundraising is about vision and return on investment. The urgency of a need in your community, and the ability of your organization to meet that need is critical. FCD can help your non-profit develop clearly identified impact strategies, and ensure that the ROI from your programming is known by key funders and shareholders. We manage campaigns for cultural and performing arts centers, YMCAs, education foundations and other select non-profits – let us help you garner the resources to take your organization to the next level!
Supporting and attracting industry, developing a strong workforce and selling the business assets of your community are the bread and butter of Economic Development authorities, but implementing those programs requires the right resources. FCD can help you engage your current corporate leaders to shape a compelling vision for the future economic growth of your community and ensure that you have the resources necessary to fully implement that strategy.
Downtown is home! It’s where we gather for holidays and meet friends for dinner or drinks. But, as you know, a thriving downtown takes a lot of hard work. That work is focused on a clear vision for the city center and requires access to the right resources. Be it marketing and public festivals, beautification or targeted redevelopment and business recruitment FCD can help you gather key stakeholders from your downtown to develop a powerful five-year strategy, and then raise the funding to turn that vision into a reality.
