Downtown PKB Partner Program, get involved this year

When you invest in Downtown PKB, you are investing in your entire community.

It has been said that a community’s main street is the heart of the community. To strengthen a community, you must take care of and strengthen the main street. It takes many people with a mutual interest to preserve the history, revitalize space and make positive changes. Downtown PKB is responsible for leading the charge, but we cannot do it alone. We rely on the involvement of our community members and businesses to invest their time and money in our organization through their participation in our Partner Program. That investment helps us to continue our mission to enhance, revitalize and aesthetically improve downtown Parkersburg.

Since the beginning of the Partner program in 2017, there has been a growing interest from individuals and businesses who find value in belonging to the program. The partnership is set up to benefit both Downtown PKB as well as those who join the program. With five different participation levels and perks accompanying each level, it’s easy to find a way to become involved.

Interested community members and businesses of any size who believe in our revitalization efforts can become a Partner of Downtown PKB. Being a 501c3 non-profit organization allows your tax-deductible donations to help us diversify our funding and continue providing a unique array of events for the whole family, while also promoting our downtown merchants and businesses throughout the year. Individuals may join our Partner program with a gift of $100 or more, while businesses have options ranging from $250 to $2,500.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of Partners at each level of the program. Thank you for investing in us and in downtown Parkersburg. A special thank you to the businesses at our Visionary and Champion levels this year:
