MainStreet Cleveland is a thriving nonprofit organization dedicated to downtown revitalization. The organization was accepted into the national MainStreet program in 1990 and was one of the first MainStreet programs in the state. Each year since 1991, Cleveland has earned recognition for commercial district revitalization by meeting the standards for performance set by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Main Street Center. Mainstreet Cleveland is committed to a thriving, diverse, livable, and economically robust central business district.
The organization has led the redevelopment of the Courthouse Square, First Street Square, Wayfinding, and beautification. Mainstreet organizes events and festivals which attract more than 60,000 people to downtown annually.
The MainStreet Cleveland Project Fund allows donors to join with many others to support downtown development and revitalization efforts while receiving the benefit of a tax-deduction.
Donations are made by simply writing a check to the Foundation designated to the Fund or online.
