UNITING NON-PROFITS, UNITING THE COMMUNITY
The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce is launching a new community building service called Chamber for Good. This service will allow local charities to increase their visibility within the community. This new initiative will assist the Chamber to reach out to the many outstanding nonprofits that make a difference in our community by helping them to achieve their goals. This program is free and open to 501 (C)(3) charities that service residents of Coral Springs.
Chamber for Good is an innovative way for businesses and philanthropic individuals to become aware of local charitable needs, causes and events. Bringing individuals, organizations and businesses together to achieve great goals is a key focus of the chamber. The Chamber for Good system will serve to connect all local charitable organizations and causes with the individuals and organizations within our community that are eager to support local needs.
“This program allows us to connect our residents and businesses and really strengthen our community in a way that we haven’t been able to do before”, explained Cindy Brief, President and CEO of the Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce . “Our goal is to help nonprofits raise awareness and money needed. By leveraging the support of our businesses we will be able to make a difference in our community, which is what we always strive for.”
The Chamber for Good tool allows residents of our community to view local charitable needs posted by local charities sorted into three areas: financial, volunteer, and goods and items needed. All local charities that fit the eligibility guidelines have the ability to create a public profile on the Chamber for Good site, then post needs in the three areas as they arise,” explained Cindy Brief.
Residents are encouraged to go to the Chamber for Good website and enter their email address toward the bottom of the home page. By doing this they will be notified once per week, by email, of the local needs that exist among the charitable organizations and causes that operate within our community.
The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce will launch The Chamber for Good with a networking event on July 20, 2017 from 8:30 -10:00am. The event will be open to all non-profits and businesses that serve non-profits (not just chamber members). The launch will discuss the usage of The Chamber for Good website, committee responsibilities and the goal for the overall program. This will also be a great networking event!
