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.  You can join online here.
