Client Reviews

Success is hard to beat! This is the second campaign that Steve Dorough and First Community Development have conducted for the Area Development Partnership and both have exceeded their goals significantly. Steve is a confident and professional fundraiser who has conducted successful campaigns all over Mississippi and the Southeast. When it comes to professional fundraising, I could not recommend another company any higher than I would Steve and First Community Development.
Chad Newell, President, Area Development Partnership
Your expert guidance and support, and the efficient and effective day-to-day management
skills of Gerald Scott, helped us exceed our financial goal of $1.75 Million. We truly feel
that IMPACT 2012 is a partnership between our Chamber and your company... and that is
exactly what we are looking for when we went "shopping" for a fundraising professional.
Myrna Ballard, President, Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber
Your professional and experienced approach to developing a compelling story, enlisting
the right leadership, and managing the campaign day-to-day was a big key to our success.
Now we have an excellent game plan, committed leadership throughout the community and
the resources we need to get the job done.
