Supporting the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District (BID) is crucial for enhancing business conditions, job creation, tourism and the overall quality of life within the district. Donations play a pivotal role in achieving these objectives and ensuring Downtown Troy remains a desirable place to live, visit, and enjoy.

Every contribution to the BID directly benefits the community it serves. In 2023, thanks to the generosity of donors, remarkable accomplishments were made:

  • Significant growth in social media following, reaching over 26,000 followers spanning from NYC to Burlington, VT.
  • Marketing support provided to over 30 businesses, resulting in a 15% increase in visibility.
  • Formation of partnerships with local influencers and over 50 news hits throughout the year.
  • Beautification efforts, including the addition of 100 hanging baskets and planting of 20 flower-filled planters, funded by the successful Earth Day fundraiser.
  • Acquisition of an electric vehicle to reduce the carbon footprint and assist in maintenance activities, made possible with support from the Troy Redevelopment Foundation.
  • Introduction of holiday decorations on 3rd and Congress St through local donations.
  • Heavy support provided to initiatives like the Troy Art Block, volunteer clean-ups, and events such as Troy River Festival, Pig Out, and more.
  • Establishment of the Quality of Life committee to address safety concerns and improve communication with city authorities.

While the BID receives a tax assessment, additional funds are necessary to support businesses and organize events effectively.

Sponsorships and donations play a critical role in making Downtown Troy vibrant and lively. 

Moving into 2024, the goals include expanding beautification efforts, intensifying marketing initiatives, organizing smaller events, increase in foot-traffic/tourism and enhancing community clean-up endeavors, among others.

Your donation to the Downtown Troy BID will directly contribute to achieving these goals and making a tangible difference in the vitality and attractiveness of the district. As a 501(c)(3) organization, your support is vital for the continued growth and prosperity of Downtown Troy.
