A thriving Capital City is an economic environment from which every resident and business in the Capital Region can benefit and flourish. BID programs and initiatives have been responsible for many key elements of Downtown Albany’s resurgence, but there is much more work to be done.  With the BID’s 501(c)(3) status your *tax-deductible dollars can invest in a myriad of efforts designed to continue the momentum begun several years ago. 

From business development initiatives targeted at redevelopment and growth to quality of life initiatives like the Sculpture in the Streets public art program, beautification elements, entertainment events, farmers markets and more, the BID plays a key role in the life of New York’s Capital. Your philanthropic investment with the BID uniquely includes significant marketing exposure for your business or organization via advertising, marketing, and public relations campaigns associated with each program, not to mention our electronic media opportunities targeted to a qualified consumer audience.  

Interested? To find out how you can partner with the BID on these innovative investments in your Capital City, contact Marquita Rhodes at 518.465.2143  x11 to begin a discussion.
