Fast Forward Mississippi and its developmental organization the Mississippi Brain Drain Commission have formed a partnership with the Mississippi Leadership Forum in order to receive 501(c)3 status. The move will allow funds to be raised on behalf of development and outreach efforts planned by Fast Forward Mississippi. Under this partnership, a new independent board will be formed for Mississippi Leadership Forum, and its stated mission adjusted to accurately reflect the mission of Fast Forward Mississippi. Once these aspects are completed, Fast Forward Mississippi will be free to solicit and accept tax-deductible funding.
Fast Forward Mississippi is the branded outreach component of the Mississippi Brain Drain Commission. Its efforts are focused on providing information and awareness of the vast opportunities that exist in Mississippi in terms of career path and quality of life. At the core of all its projects, Fast Forward Mississippi will communicate the fact that individuals can “go farther, faster” in Mississippi.
