• Charitable Donations

  • The Des Moines East and South Chamber of Commerce has a limited ability to fund donation requests for projects and events. Our stated mission revolves around promoting and bettering our business community. We have created these policies and criteria as a guide for those interested in making requests for donations. The Board of Directors will set a donation budget for each year. All projects must fit within our scope of purpose and adhere to our Mission. Download the Charitable Donation Form here.
