Through our various initiatives ranging from Safety Ambassadors to our Façade Improvement Program, Downtown Visions is working to show the world what an amazing place Downtown Wilmington can be. We plan to keep the energy of this transformation alive, but we need your help! Below are the three primary ways you can support our efforts: 1) Sponsor; 2) Donate; 3) Volunteer.


Sponsor

Dear Corporate Neighbor,

Downtown Visions (DTV) is the non-profit organization chartered by the State and City for the revitalization of downtown Wilmington.   In addition, our Main Street Wilmington program, a division of DTV, is certified by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

In 2016, we are offering Wilmington businesses the opportunity to increase Brand visibility and customer loyalty with the estimated 100,000 people who visit downtown Wilmington each day for work, business, the courts, government purposes, and entertainment.  Specifically, Downtown Visions, in conjunction with Main Street Wilmington, is offering several Corporate Sponsorship packages to companies that have an important presence in Wilmington.  These packages allow your business to reach the local consumer while simultaneously advocating Corporate Social Responsibility. 

If you are interested, please read the following literature and contact me at your earliest convenience.  There are a limited number of sponsorships available, so we wanted to ensure that we presented this unique offer as soon as it was available.  

In addition to the sponsorship packages, we also provide opportunities throughout the year for you and your colleagues to network, host events, and partner in the growth of the downtown Wilmington community.

We hope you join us!

Thank You,
Martin Hageman
Executive Director

Downtown fARMER’S MARKET

As the official Farmer’s Market sponsor, your company banner will be prominently displayed at each of the 22 weekly events and featured in our website and advertising.

In addition, you will have a booth area of your own where goods and services can be sold and literature and take-aways distributed.

A representative of your company will officially “open” the Farmer’s Market in May, with accompanying PR. We will also provide signage for your use internally, so your employees and customers will be aware of your sponsorship.

The cost for Downtown Visions to produce and manage the Farmer’s Market is approximately $50,000 per year.

Sponsorship prices start at $1000
