Main Street Volunteers Get Things Done

April 21st-27th is National Volunteer Week! Madison Main Street is thrilled to take a moment to honor the backbone of our organization - our dedicated volunteers. From lending a helping hand at events to spreading awareness in their circles, our volunteers play a pivotal role in driving the Main Street Mission and taking Madison forward.

Madison Main Street is a team of residents, business owners, property owners, and civic leaders working together to ensure that downtown Madison is a vibrant place to live, work, shop, dine, visit, and play. Established in the late 1970's as one of three pilot communities in the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street movement, Madison Main Street is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designated by Indiana Main Street and accredited by the National Main Street Center. Our mission is to preserve America’s historic downtown as economically vital centers of the community.

Madison’s historic downtown district is economically vibrant, with shops, restaurants, and nightlife serving local residents as well as a large number of tourists and visitors. With more than 12 events organized annually, we ensure the investment in our non-profit mission is measurable and promotes all things local.

We have five working areas of Main Street, each considered as a committee and volunteer-run. These committees handle specific events, workshops, initiatives, experiences, programs, the weekly Madison Farmers Market, and much more! Our volunteers get things done! Madison Main Street Program (MMSP) is made up of a volunteer-based board and committee leadership. Paid staff follows through with the initiatives and day-to-day organization that are strategically planned by the volunteer base.

In celebration of National Volunteer Week, we want to take the time to thank YOU and all who have volunteered with Madison Main Street! To continue the celebration and discussion, we invite you to join us at our Main Street Meet-Up event on May 23rd, stay tuned for more details! It's an opportunity to meet Main Street volunteers and learn how to be involved. Whether you're passionate about historic preservation, event planning, marketing, or community engagement, there's a place for you on our team.

This National Volunteer Week, we extend our deepest gratitude to every one of our volunteers. Your generosity, kindness, and tireless efforts do not go unnoticed. You are the heartbeat of Madison Main Street, and we are endlessly grateful for your partnership and support!

To those considering volunteering, we invite you to join us in making a difference. Whether you can spare an hour or a day, your contribution matters. Your time helps and matters!

Thank you to our incredible volunteers for all that you do. Happy National Volunteer Week!

We can't wait to see you in downtown Madison!
