Partnering For The Future II

A Five Year Strategy for Economic and Community Development

Campaign Goal: $1,750,000
Current Totals: $2,012,948

Aggressive Goals

New jobs. The attraction of capital. Property redevelopment. Population growth. Leadership development. Community marketing. Available workforce. All of these elements and more are contained in the plan linked to aggressive goals and performance measures. Small thinking often yields insignificant results while big thinking leads to powerful outcomes. This plan is aggressive, yet achievable.

Competitive Positioning

Economic development is not for the faint of heart. The competition in Iowa and across the nation is intense. Other communities will raise more money, but our team at the Partnership is second to none. They are true professionals in their given fields and have been trained to leverage every dollar for maximum results.


$1.75 million is a sign of strong support for the community. As stewards of these resources, accountability is paramount. The Burlington Area Development Foundation has an independent board of trustees, and its sole purpose is to monitor the utilization of Partnering for the Future II funds and ensure adequate progress towards the goals. The Partnership is a four-star accredited organization by the US Chamber and is audited annually in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Defining the Future

When you look around the community, you can see the results of bold leadership. Our community has endured its share of difficult times, yet there is every reason to be optimistic about the future. In 20 years, the next batch of leaders will evaluate the work we did today. Let’s give them something to talk about. Together, we can change the fate of our community.
