Success Story: Membership for Non-Profits
The Costa Mesa Chamber created a “win-win” by establishing an exclusive membership level for non-profit organizations with a flat membership rate.
With the increased awareness around corporate social responsibility, the initiative provides the perfect arena for member businesses to connect with local, non-profit organizations.
The non-profit members are also highlighted in the Chamber’s e-newsletters and monthly luncheons.
It gives them a unique public relations opportunity to reach businesses and community members and has resulted in increased collaboration between non-profits.
The exclusive member status has resulted in increased memberships, demonstrated chamber relevancy, and provided a path for growth of community support for local non-profits.
