Non Profit Business Council releases new non-profit events calendar

Ocala, Florida (April 20, 2015) – The Non Profit Business Council, a leadership program of the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership, has created a non-profit events calendar, intended for all non-profit organizations in the Ocala/Marion County area to plan their fundraising and community events.
The Non Profit Business Council is a group comprised of more than 142 area non-profits with a mission to promote the positive economic impact of nonprofits; strengthen their leadership capacity; and promote collaboration and philanthropic education throughout the community.
Lauren DeIorio, chair of the Non Profit Business Council, explained, “Over the past few years, the NPBC steering committee has had many non-profit organizations express the need for a calendar dedicated to local non-profit events in Marion County. Many of the representatives wanted an easily accessible calendar that plotted events at least 12 months year. The calendar would help with planning of events, so fundraisers wouldn’t conflict with another local non-profit’s event.”
Submitting your non-profit event is simple and easy. Visit the Non Profit Business Council’s landing page and click, “Submit an event,” which will provide you with a form to complete. Fill out the form and click, “Submit,” and your event will be sent to the CEP for approval. Upon approval, it will be displayed on the Events Calendar for view by all area non-profit organizations.
For more information about this Events Calendar or the Non Profit Business Council, please contact Jaye Baillie at or 352.629.8051 x 101.


The Ocala/Marion County Chamber and Economic Partnership was created to be a one-stop hub for the community’s business attraction, creation and retention efforts. The CEP’s mission is to be THE catalyst for a prosperous community. The Moving Forward plan seeks to impact the creation of 3500 new jobs with wages 15% above the county average and resulting in a capital investment of $225 million by 2018.
