Since 1972, the West Orange Chamber of Commerce has worked to enhance the business climate and quality of life in West Orange County. This year we celebrate 45 years of facilitating opportunity throughout the region. We have built a reputation for fostering growth and inspiring progress. The Chamber was formed on the heels of the opening of Walt Disney World and is once again at a milestone moment in its mission to support economic prosperity as West Orange County experiences unprecedented growth.
The West Orange Chamber of Commerce works to strengthen its business members and the challenges they face in this 21st Century dynamic economy. It is with this demand in mind that we are retooling our strategic plan to align with the needs of the local marketplace and respond to state and national trends that impact the business climate. There are two key areas of focus. The first is our newly launched West Orange Foundation, created to support important causes, workforce development and education initiatives. The second is our plan to create a work and gathering space environment that will enhance the program support of our WOCC members and our community.
In anticipation of the continued strong growth of the West Orange business community, the West Orange Chamber of Commerce is seeking to create a state-of-the-art interior with expanded meeting areas, new member service stations, upgrades to the building’s exterior, and accommodations for a growing staff to meet members’ needs.
The cost of expansion is $450,000, which will be funded through support of members, along with a significant contribution of the organization’s own funds. To date, the organization has lead gifts of $125,000 toward the “Growth Matters” capital campaign.
We are excited to announce this renovation as we celebrate 45 years of Facilitating Opportunity in West Orange County. The revitalization of our building will allow us to provide the best possible service to our members and our rapidly growing community.
We recognize our donors’ generosity. The naming opportunities below are intended to honor our donors and illustrate their important in our community.
All Capital Campaign Donors will be listed on the donor wall. Donors of more than $10,000 will have their names represented in the largest typeface. Donors of between $4,500 and $9,999 will become members of the West Orange Chamber of Commerce's Sapphire Society and will have their names represented in the next largest typeface.
