Did you know that the Davie County Chamber and Davie County Tourism accept grant requests annually for projects that positively impact tourism in Davie County?
“The Davie County Chamber of Commerce wears many hats. In addition to serving as the catalyst for business growth and economic development, the Chamber promotes the community through county-wide tourism initiatives and is home to the Davie County Visitor Center which is filled with free regional brochures and maps.
One of the Chamber’s tourism initiatives is DiscoverDavieCounty.com which features all of Davie County’s delicious restaurants, unique shops, and exciting attractions. Discover Davie County Facebook and Instagram share exciting upcoming events and fun contests. The Chamber’s website offers an events calendar and everyone is encouraged to sign up for the weekly events e-newsletter. Business owners are invited to join the Discover Davie County Tourism Networking Group.
“We are a conduit of information and a county-wide one-stop shop for events and fun activities to do with family and friends,” explained Chamber President Caroline Moser.
She explained that a large portion of the Chamber’s tourism budget, funded through the county’s hotel occupancy tax, also goes directly to support local organizations that “help make Davie County the unique place that we all know and love” through tourism grants. “Over the years we have had the opportunity to support dozens of special organizations and programs.”
Grant applications are reviewed by the Davie County Tourism Advisory Board which serves to assist with the development and marketing of Davie County’s tourism attractions, assets, and potential tourism sites; and to encourage the economic development of Davie County through travel and tourism. The advisory board is comprised of Davie County business leaders who provide innovative advice and dynamic perspectives.
This year, the advisory board is pleased to present grants to the following five organizations which are a wonderful asset to the community.
