The Asheville Downtown Association (ADA) is now accepting applications for our Wristband Nonprofit Program, part of the Downtown After 5 summer concert series. The nonprofit organization works the wristband sales tents at the event and receives a $2000 grant. The ADA will select 5 nonprofit organizations, one for each Downtown After 5 (held third Fridays, May-September).
Applications must be completed by February 5th in order to be considered for the 2018 season.
Please also note the following:
Deadline for submissions is February 5th.
The applying organization must have at least 30 individuals, over 18, available to work in two shifts. These shifts run from 4:45-7:15pm and 7-9:15pm.
The group will split the wristband revenues with the ADA (50/50) up to a maximum of $2,000.
Organizations with a strong connection to downtown or those that provide services that directly benefit downtown will receive stronger consideration.
Downtown After 5 dates are: May 18, June 15, July 20, August 17 and September 21
Organizations are not required to be members of the Asheville Downtown Association to apply to become a wristband charity, however, local nonprofits can join to receive additional benefits for your organization. For a $50 nonprofit membership, we can provide additional marketing for events and promotions through social media, member profiles, event listings on our new website and bi-weekly newsletter (1300+ recipients).
