"Jerry Hinson provided us, the Greater Hall Chamber, the leadership and guidance to exceed our goal of $2.1 million for a very successful five year program in 2010…..when the economy was not doing well.   Jerry went beyond the “call of duty” to assure our campaign was successful.  Our investors are very pleased.”                                                                                

Kit Dunlap, President/CEO, Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce (GA)




"Jerry Hinson has done two highly successful economic development funding campaigns for our Chamber.  Jerry’s success is his leadership, vision and listening style where he immerses himself into your organization and community…he becomes much more than a consultant.  Jerry and his team become supportive members of your staff and visible Chamber and community members working to achieve a highly successful funding campaign. I would absolutely recommend Opportunity Funding for your next funding campaign.”    
Lyle A. Butler, President/CEO, Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce (KS)




"Jerry Hinson and Opportunity Funding made our fund raising program both fun and very rewarding. As a professional who had worked in economic development and chamber management for over 30 years, I learned a lot from Jerry's system and programs. We far surpassed our goals and were very excited about our results."    

Doug Kinsinger, CCE,  Former President, GO Topeka and Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce (KS)

"Jerry Hinson has an uncommon talent for developing enthusiasm and financial investments for deserving economic development initiatives. Jerry helped our organization develop over one million dollars in private/public investments by 72 mainly private sector investors in only a few months.

Any economic development organization looking for expert guidance and leadership in securing new investments, should engage Jerry Hinson for assistance!"

“Jerry has just completed a nine month campaign for us. He had amazing impact on bringing a community together for a common cause. It was great to experience his very detailed process of working through a campaign that was designed for our individual area. "At the end of the day" Jerry is the ultimate professional in what he does. He makes believers out of naysayers and becomes a partner in ensuring a successful outcome for your fundraising efforts and a friend to the community for life.”

Susan Jagerson, Economic Development, "Junction City First"



“I worked with Jerry on an innovative public private education initiative in a community of 25,000 exceeding our goal of $2.5 million and raising over $3.3 million in a six month campaign.  Jerry was instrumental in guiding our efforts and his professionalism played a key role in exceeding our goal.  Throughout the campaign and in the following years, I have known Jerry Hinson to be professional in all of his activities and to provide great leadership to any campaign.”
