Annual fund marks change in Noblesville Main Street operations


In a shift by its officers and board of directors, Noblesville Main Street is transitioning from a membership-based model to a business model “designed to empower the greater community” and to help fund the 60-plus annual events provided by the organization.

A yearly fund will operate the organization and be replenished through donations and contributions from individuals, companies and organizations that choose to support Noblesville Main Street. Individual memberships will not be sold.


“Main Street is a nonprofit organization funded primarily by the generosity of donors and sponsors who support our mission, which is to promote downtown Noblesville in every way possible,” board president Craig Crosser said. “We hope by asking for the community to partner with us and give to the annual fund, we are able to better inform the public of our nonprofit status and hopefully increase giving that is so badly needed to sustain and broaden the many events we offer.”

Incremental donation levels have been raised by the board for the first time in four years and will help offset the cost of Noblesville Main Street events. The organization said most of the events will remain free for the public to attend.


“I see the annual fund as another way in which our organization continues to more clearly define who we are, what we do to support this community and our commitment to downtown Noblesville as the heart of this great city,” Noblesville Main Street CEO Chris Owens said.

The 2018 annual fund renewals will be mailed in December. Annual fund donations also can be made by visiting
