By becoming a downtown sponsor, your gift demonstrates a love and commitment to the Capital City, with funds supporting activities throughout the year. This funding is essential as we work together to transform community spaces, activate vacant buildings, offer community events, and take charge of the future.
Sponsors giving $500 - $2,500 have the opportunity to directly support the visual elements that make downtown shine. From hanging baskets, to holiday lamp post decor, to string lights, your sponsorship makes our neighborhood feel like home.
Sponsors giving $2,500 - $5,000 help fulfill critical needs for making downtown’s many events possible, such as securing spaces, partnering with vendors, and offering an entertaining experience for residents and new visitors alike.
Annual sponsors giving $10,000 - $40,000 help fund our year-round activities and programs that are intentionally designed to further build Downtown Lansing’s culture, opportunities, and activity at all hours of the day.
Sponsors giving $5,000 - $100,000 play a key role in writing the future for our Accelerator Programs downtown, The Shops at Middle Village and The Macotta Club. These programs provide a launching pad for new businesses to thrive downtown.
Sponsors giving $2,500 - $10,000 have the opportunity to support a full season of activities in Downtown Lansing through our Sponsor a Season level of giving. Whatever your favorite time of year — winter, spring, summer, fall — you can help make our seasonal programming happen.
In addition to sponsorships, Downtown Lansing Inc. is grateful for individual donations that help support our various programs. These gifts go on to make our work possible across all initiatives, from events to beautification to community building.
