Economic Strategy Center Documents Return on Investment for NCDS Clients
Over 20 years ago, NCDS pioneered the use of economic impact analyses in fundraising campaigns to convey the ROI of our clients' programs, based on
of new jobs, capital investment, industry sector growth, and other client goals. Since then, our Economic Strategy Center has worked with clients to improve data collection of their project wins and other successes to more accurately document their
on their communities and supporters. We have also strengthened our partnership with
to ensure access to the latest and most accurate city / county / MSA data and their powerful economic modeling tools. The result is a
that can be used to show investors their specific return on their investment in a five-year campaign, including during each year of the program's implementation. We've also developed a macro-level
that clients can use in their annual reports and other publications.
