In February 2017, the RiNo Art District announced RiNo Gives Back, an initiative that invites local businesses to spread the love and give back to the community!

How it Works:

To become part of the program, local businesses can volunteer to donate a portion of their sales to one of the many projects the RiNo Art District is spearheading – or may opt to donate to the RiNo Art District general fund – on a recurring basis.

Examples may include:

  • Hosting a special RiNo Night at your bar or restaurant where a percentage of proceeds are given back
  • Donating a portion of ticket sales to your show or concert
  • Dedicating a portion of all sales from a particular product
  • or come up with your own creative idea!

The goal is to provide a way for businesses to give directly back to the community and spread the love to the causes you care about while funding a brighter future for the neighborhood.

What RiNo Causes Can You Support?

Businesses can opt to direct their funds to a specific program or project, or can provide a direct contribution to the RiNo General Fund to support all initiatives the organization is working on. Causes your business may be interested in supporting include:

  • Artist Support
  • Public Art
  • Infrastructure Improvements
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian Accessibility
  • Environment/Sustainability
  • Homelessness
  • #WhatUnitesUs – Supporting Projects in RiNo’s Surrounding Neighborhoods

To get involved:

  1. Decide how you want to give back, and what you want your donation directed to.
  2. Contact Amanda Kriss at to share that information with us.
  3. We will provide you with the RiNo Gives Back logo to use and will work with you to promote your contribution! Your participation will be noted on our website and social media.

The RiNo Art District is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit so gifts are deductible as a business expense.
