[ARCHIVED] DDA Launches Downtown Gift Card Stimulus Program

Raise Up Downtown Gift Card Stimulus Program

UPDATE: April 20, 2020 - This promotion has sold out. Thank you for your support! Go here for more information. 


April 17, 2020 – In an effort to support downtown businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Midland Downtown Development Authority has launched a limited-time stimulus program that will raise up to $87,500 for business in the district.

The Raise Up Downtown program allows supporters to purchase $25 electronic gift cards from downtown retailers, restaurants, and personal service providers whose operations were temporarily closed or adversely impacted by Executive Order 2020-42 (“Stay Home, Stay Safe”) or other executive orders and public health directives issued during the COVID-19 pandemic. The DDA will add an additional $10 to every $25 gift card purchased, giving supporters a total of $35 to spend at their chosen downtown business.

To purchase a gift card, patrons can visit and select their gift card(s) from a list of participating businesses. The program will offer 2,500 gift cards for purchase available on a first-come, first-serve basis. All gift cards are electronic and will be usable at the purchaser’s selected downtown business after June 1, 2020.
