Corporate Buddies

Calling all prospective Non-Profits interested in Chamber of Commerce affiliation AND businesses that want to pay it forward!  We'd like to extend an offer for businesses to non-profits that are currently not Chamber members to engage with Chamber of Commerce programming to the fullest. With this agreement, the Ames Chamber business member offers to pay half the non-profit level dues while the Non Profit pays the other half of dues fulfillment.   This partnership increases the visibility and engagement for the both non-profit and the businesses offering to “pay it forward.”  Interested in being a BUSINESS partner, click here.  Interested in being a NON-PROFIT partner, click here.
