Donate as a Downtown Business Owner

Your donation supports and nurture the community we love. We use our resources and expertise to strengthen our local businesses, creative professionals, collaborators and culinary culture through education, grants and consistent community outreach.

HDR is not a membership organization and promotion of downtown businesses and participating in our programs is not exclusive to Friends; however, we do have some perks just for you:

  • Eligible to participate in our Downtown Dollars downtown-wide gift certificate program. Your business will be listed online as well as on the flyer that is included with every certificate sold so customers know they can spend them with you.
  • Eligible for inclusion in our annual holiday gift guide (the printed DNR insert and digital guide) and can receive free professional photographs of your merchandise.
  • Eligible to participate in all Taste of Downtown promotions, including the annual Downtown Dining Guide. 
  • Eligible to enter a float for free in the annual Veterans Day parade.
  • Eligible for candy for trick or treating during our annual Skeleton Fest.
  • Prioritized in content development, newsletter content, social media campaigns and posts, and media pitches.
  • Eligible to participate in the Sip and Stroll license during applicable events.
  • Listed as donors on our website and in our annual report.
