The Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC is making a positive impact in our region. That is why we have agreed to lead the 2012 CREDC Campaign: Making a Difference that will support economic development in our region over the next four years. We are both on the CREDC Board and familiar with the capabilities and achievements of CREDC and because of that, we are proud to lead this fund raising campaign.

Your investment in CREDC is an investment in your region, in the success of your business and the building blocks for the future. Your support makes it all possible. Your dollars become an investment in our regional business community, which contributes to more commerce in our region as well as additions to our growing local tax base.

You have a quality organization with a talented and energetic staff that has helped to package grants and loans for area businesses and projects that total over $335 million over the last 10 years. For every dollar invested in CREDC Campaigns over that period of time, the return on investment is $61 for every $1 invested. That also includes helping businesses create and retain over 11,600 jobs during that same period.
