Invest in Your

Our Mission: Building and Sustaining Community Through a Vibrant Downtown. This is a mission that is met through the invaluable support of many types of Partners: local businesses, nonprofit partners, large regional companies, local governmental and civic organizations and individual citizens. Their support comes in many forms, from tax credit incentive contributions, to event sponsorships. We are so grateful to all and glad to acknowledge their support.

Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program 


Business & Occupation 75% Tax Credit Opportunity


The Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program provides a Business & Occupation (B&O) or Public Utility Tax (PUT) credit for private contributions given to eligible downtown organizations such as the Ellensburg Downtown Association. Once your business’s donation request is approved by the Department of Revenue, you are eligible for a tax credit worth 75% of the contribution to EDA. If your downtown organization is a 501(c)(3) you may be eligible for a federal income tax deduction as a charitable contribution.

Donation requests are easy to submit online, and the donation can be spread throughout the calendar year. Please contact us for more details; we would be happy to set up an appointment to discuss the ways in which the B&O/PUT tax incentive program can benefit both your business and our community!
