ADA is now accepting applications for wristband charities


We are pleased to announce that the Asheville Downtown Association is now accepting applications for our Wristband Charities program, as a part of the Downtown After 5 summer concert series. The charitable organization works the wristband sales tents at the event and splits the sales (receiving up to a maximum of $2000) with the Asheville Downtown Association. The ADA will select 5 nonprofit organizations as the charity, one for each Downtown After 5 (held 3rd Fridays, May-September).

Please download the Wristband Charity Application that must be completed by March 1st in order to be considered for the 2013 season. Please also note the following:

  • Deadline for submissions is Friday March 1.
  • Applying organizations must have a Sponsoring ADA Board Member who acts as their liaison
  • The applying organization must have at least 26 individuals, over 18, available to work in two shifts (16 – 1st shift, 10 – 2nd shift). These shifts run from 4:45-7:00 and 7:00-9:15.
  • The group will split the wristband revenues with the ADA (50/50) up to a maximum of $2,000

Organizations are not required to be members of the Asheville Downtown Association to apply to become a wristband charity, however, we encourage local nonprofits to 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, discounts, and event listings on our new website, and weekly newsletter (1000+ recipients). We are also the Voice of Downtown, providing an outlet to address issues relating to downtown, including public events, public safety, cleanup and infrastructure, and the overall improvement of Downtown Asheville. You can join as a Nonprofit Member online, or by contacting me at info@ashevilledowntown.org and 828.251.9973.
