Sponsorship Opportunities

2023 Downtown Helena Sponsorships

Strong communities thrive when a sense of community and belonging are shared. Downtown Helena is the Heart of Helena! By supporting events and other initiatives, you are participating in a community that values connection and believes in promoting, enhancing, and protecting the Heart of Helena.

Join us in supporting the place where friends, neighbors, and visitors work together to make Helena the best place to live, work, play, and invest. The best part is you don’t have to be a DHI member to sponsor an event downtown, but if you sponsor over a thousand dollars you will be given a free Downtown Helena, Inc membership. Strong partnerships and collaborations breed success. We also host a downtown community meeting monthly on the third Wednesday of every month. Join in the fun and conversation!
