Asking the same members over and over for money isn’t working.
In order to be a trusted guide for businesses in your community, you need resources to fund your programming and staffing. Constantly asking the same members for money is not only stressful, it’s discouraging.
As a chamber professional, you’ve got hundreds of responsibilities – asking members for what feels like a "chamber donation" shouldn’t be one of them.
A Permanent Solution to Your Non-Dues Revenue Problem
A YGM Total Resource Campaign (TRC) develops the leadership, staff, marketing, and financial resources for your Chamber’s comprehensive program of work by securing business sponsors through an all-volunteer program.
More Business Sponsors
& Excellent Retention Rates
On average, 80% of YGM TRC sponsors are participating for the first time. Annual retention rates average 85-90% because their custom sponsorship supports their business goals.
Not Another Job for You
A YGM TRC comes with comprehensive, hands-on training for staff and volunteers. We equip your team with everything they need to succeed, including an unparalleled online platform that makes sponsorship campaigns sustainable and repeatable every year.
A Chamber that Runs like a
We’re not just here to help you make a one-time cash grab. At YGM, we believe you and your members deserve more. We’re committed to implementing systems that will upgrade your operations and decrease your stress levels.
“Running a chamber isn’t easy. I’ve been there. Our program was made for chamber professionals who want off the hamster wheel.”
YGM President & CEO Jason E. Ebey, IOM
When Jason E. Ebey, IOM became a chamber CEO for the first time, he was a young 21-year-old who knew very little about how a chamber operates.
As Jason tells it, he had to learn as he went along and the process itself was anything but linear.
From helping chambers over the last 20 years, Jason discovered something interesting about his own early experience. On-the-job learning and being overwhelmed in the chamber industry is not unique.
That’s why at YGM, Jason and his team want to give chamber leaders more than the average 200-800% of increased non-dues revenue (and that’s just in the first year!). At YGM, we want to give you the tools to run your chamber like a profitable business so you can achieve a stress-free, stable budget year after year.
