The continued growth of Harrisonburg's dynamic, thriving downtown scene depends upon the support of individuals and businesses just like you.

Friends of Downtown are a community of people who recognize the impact that HDR has made in leading this evolution. They call downtown "the best thing about Harrisonburg" but realize there is more work to be done. Our Friends are downtown businesses who appreciate our work; area businesses who recognize the quality of life that downtown brings to their employees; and individuals and families who love access to good food, local art, live music, and events for all ages.

Donating to HDR enables us to continue offering our current programs such as the Facade Enhancement Grant program, networking events, business assistance workshops, and various festivals. Your support will help us implement new initiatives such as conducting market research to help recruit the right businesses, enhancing downtown's appearance, and building on the programs we have already started.
