Become a Donor

Since 1987, Downtown Beloit Association (DBA) has brought property owners, business owners, and community volunteers together to manage the downtown’s Business Improvement District. Income and programming are primarily driven by:

  • Events to attract people downtown
  • Sponsorship revenue through events
  • Business support such as grants
  • Downtown beautification such as the hanging baskets

DBA is currently in the midst of an important time of growth and expansion. With the acquisition of a new building, DBA will be expanding programming and establish greater stability. This growth requires a capital investment for the building and will generate increased program expenses.


Some of the key strategies we are focusing on are:

  • Downtown event space enhancement
  • Business and employee engagement
  • Family, children and youth programming
  • Speaker engagement
  • Downtown beautification
