Friends Of Elmira Downtown

Downtown is the heart of our Community.
Our Friends are the heart of Elmira Downtown.


The continued growth of Elmira's dynamic downtown depends on the support of individuals and businesses just like you.  Friends of Downtown is a new initiative from Elmira Downtown because people asked "How can I help" - a community of people who recognize the impact that EDD has made in leading people into the heart of the city. Our friends are local businesses, not only located in downtown Elmira, but the surrounding area, community organizations, friends, colleagues that recognize the quality of life that downtown brings to their employees, individuals and families who enjoy access to good food, local art, live music and events for all ages.

Meet Our Current Friends

To show our appreciation, Elmira Downtown would like to offer public appreciation to the businesses who support Elmira Downtown programs and services. These groups, businesses, property owners, entrepreneurs and community leaders continue to show and prove that community support is vital. These are businesses and individuals who have seen first-hand what EDD delivers and they like playing an active role in our programs and events.  They see the potential in downtown and are inspired by the momentum of downtown revitalization, also knowing that there is more work to be done. We cannot thank them enough for their drive to act diligently for our hometown. 

Thank you to our current friends who have invested over $30,000 annually to our program and services which spurs Elmira Downtown and partners downtown revitalization efforts.
