DOWNTOWN MENOMONIE, INC. PROVIDES INITIALY $15,000 INVESTMENT IN DOWNTOWN SMALL BUSINESS GRANT

 

Downtown Menomonie is a non-profit, charitable organization that works together with downtown property owners and business owners to build a strong and vibrant downtown commercial district. We recognize that small businesses are the heart of downtown; and they thrive with ongoing resources for networking and support.  The organization is made up of one paid staff member and fourteen volunteer Board Members.  Past President, Derek Trainor, believes, “Downtown Menomonie Inc. continues to serve the business owners within the City of Menomonie’s Business Improvement District (BID).  Even though we can no longer hold our events due to the COVID-19 quarantine, a grant program is one way we can still make an impact.  We are here to help and will be until this difficult time has passed.”

The Board of Directors has elected to allocate $15,000 from the operating budget to a Small Business relief grant for the downtown BID.  In addition, Downtown Menomonie is seeking donations to our COVID-19 Relief Grant Fund.  With the initial investment of $15,000 the organization is off to a good start.  However, there are more than 50 small businesses within the downtown district, most of which are under mandatory shutdown or partial shutdown and need financial assistance. 

“We have wanted to remain a resource,” says Dustyn Dubuque, Executive Director, “We have a great group of businesses and property owners that have worked hard to create a vibrant and fun area for the community.  That last thing we want, is for the downtown to suffer due to these unforeseen circumstances.  While the Federal and State Governments are working hard to provide for small businesses, more is needed.  We know $15,000 is only a drop in the bucket, but with your help, we can do something amazing for the downtown.”

 

If you are able to donate to the fund, it would have a huge impact on the future of the downtown and the City of Menomonie.
