2018 was a year of transition for the chamber. To help the chamber reach goals of evolving the executive leadership, growing its membership base and implementing a new strategic plan, the Buhl Foundation granted the chamber $30,000. With this one-time infusion of extra ﬁnancial support, the chamber can implement improvements to the core activities:
- Promoting North Side/Shore businesses and organizations with marketing to encourage tourism, business use and increased reputation.
- Connecting members with networking events and referrals for business and civic opportunities.
- Supporting members and the community with business building education and advocacy for their growth efforts.
As a part of this grant, the chamber reached out to members to solicit further contributions. Several members responded with financial commitments to supplement the initial grant.
In addition to the Buhl Foundation's generous contribution of $30,000, the sponsors are as follows:
$5,000 Challenger Level
$2,500 Patron Level
$1,000 Supporter Level
