Main Street

Donations and Sponsorships for Downtown Elkin

Our Main Street Advisory Board has a limited budget created from a Municipal Service District Tax.  Our budget averages about $14,000 per year for all services we provide to our downtown in the form of grants, events, banners, maintenance, flowers, etc.  Some costs for planters and benches can be expensive and purchasing a few of these items can absorb 1/4 of our entire year's budget.  

If you are interested in helping our board fund helpful items in the downtown, donate to saving historic buildings with a grant fund, helping with flowers and beautification, sponsoring a bench, or if you have any other ideas, please let us know! 

BENCH SPONSOR - If you'd like to purchase a downtown bench, and include the "In Memory of" plaque on the bench, let us know! Your donation towards the bench would be $1000.00. The difference would be paid by the Main Street Board. 

PLANTER SPONSOR - If you can help us fund a planter "re-do", we have over 20 planters in downtown to pick from that need dirt replaced, a new water bladder installed, and new bushes planted.  If you fund the cost for a planter update, we'll add a permanent sign on that planter, thanking you and your family, business, or organization!  The donation per planter is $350.00. 

DONATIONS FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION - If you are interested in donating towards historic preservation or beautification projects for facade improvements or public art, please let our board know.  If you have a specific project you'd like to contribute to, we'd like to hear about it!

Send inquiries to the Main Street Manager at or call 336-258-8908.
