#CRCStrong, Together We Are Stronger!

What is the CRC Strong Campaign?

It is an annual fundraising campaign that is volunteer-led, staff-coordinated to secure resources necessary for membership goals and programs in the areas of professional development, education, networking and the work of selected committees for the next year. It is designed to package most of our products and services into one annual campaign, something many key Chamber supporters have indicated they want.

Why #CRCStrong Campaign?

The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce offers many services, activities and programs to help improve a member’s ability to run a profitable business in Douglas County. The CRC Strong Campaign is designed to strengthen our financial resources so that we may continue to broaden the value and the effectiveness of our Chamber, in terms of value of membership, advocacy, and services/programs.

How does it work?

Without apology, this campaign is based on accessing your influence and relationships to secure financial resources for the Chamber. To that end, the volunteers do the selling. #CRCStrong is directed by volunteer leaders with the staff doing the legwork and recruited volunteer teams actually doing the selling of the Chamber’s key strategic initiatives and programs.

What are the goals?

The key goal is to have a well-funded chamber of commerce capable of positively influencing the economic well-being of the area and providing programs and services that members deem valuable.
