Downtown Placemakers Campaign Growing with Community Support

IScreen Shot 2015-05-29 at 10.07.26 AMn April, we officially announced our Downtown Placemakers campaign, and in just a month we hit a major milestone: we’ve already raised more than $1,000!

Hard-working staff, dedicated volunteers, unique businesses, and a supportive community are among the vital ingredients for this early success. But the essential element is the donors! The individual men and women who took action to make a donation and support our work to make Downtown Appleton a fun, dynamic place.

In the months ahead you will see the fruits of this effort. Inspiring events like Art on the Town are becoming more engaging; underused spaces will be brought to life; the cityscape will blossom with color. This new energy will make our city center a more enjoyable place to live, work, and play, for both residents and visitors.

Do you want to be part of making Downtown Appleton #OneGreatPlace too? Then become a placemaker! Send your tax-deductible donation of $25 or more to Creative Downtown Appleton Inc (116 N Appleton St 54912) or call 920-954-9112. Your gift will help support creative placemaking in the heart of your community.

Thank you!!
