How We Do It
The LGBT Chamber depends solely on its members and sponsors to fund our growth and outreach. We achieve fundraising goals in various ways:
Our membership dues help fund the needed programming and education to further the mission of the Chamber. We have experienced a continued increase in membership, which only strengthens our commitment to expanding our services and benefits to our members.
The annual food and beverage tasting event, TASTE, gives the LGBT Chamber the opportunity to sell tickets to a broad audience and recruit sponsors and new members, accordingly.
The NLGBTCC Excellence in Business Awards presented by CURB Records is a celebratory luncheon in downtown Nashville. The event recognizes accomplishments of individuals, businesses, and organizations while being committed to the LGBT community.
While most of our programs are free for members, we charge a nominal fee for non-members.
The LGBT demographic, on average, is loyal, influential, and has more discretionary spending per capita. LGBT Chamber events give sponsors the opportunity to target the LGBT market and appeal to a broader audience at the same time for one price.
We would never be able to have the LGBT Chamber growth continue without the endless dedication of our volunteers. They give of their time and knowledge to help build the foundation of this organization. We welcome everyone's' expertise and experience.
