Downtown Partnership is the lead organization serving as a catalytic champion for Downtown Colorado Springs through a variety of programs and services. Our mission is to ensure that Downtown serves as the economic, cultural and civic heart of Colorado Springs.
We are a 501c4 nonprofit organization, with a growing membership base of businesses, nonprofits and individuals representing thousands of employees, residents and other downtown stakeholders. Anyone can become a member – whether or not you live or work in downtown. Indeed, our membership includes businesses from throughout the region that believe a strong downtown is essential for an economically thriving city.
“Partnership” is key to what we do. Downtown Partnership serves as an umbrella organization working closely with the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), Greater Downtown Colorado Springs Business Improvement District (BID), and Community Ventures. These affiliates were launched through the initiatives of Downtown Partnership and its predecessor organization, Downtown Colorado Springs Inc.
Our work puts us in close collaboration with city and county government; private businesses from start-ups and mom-and-pop shops to large corporations; and nonprofit groups from human service agencies to places of worship, arts and cultural organizations.
