Jacksonville Main Street is a volunteer-driven non-profit -- that means the bulk of our work is done by volunteers. From the board to committees to event assistance, volunteers make the decisions and make JMS so successful! Time is a precious gift and any amount given is highly valued. Most volunteers also have a lot of fun and meet lots of great people while helping make downtown even greater!

As an independent 501(c)3 charity, Jacksonville Main Street is not a part of the City and only gets state or Federal grants for specific projects. JMS operations and programs are all funded by sponsorships, fundraisers, and yearly partnership drives. Monetary donations are tax deductible. You can even donate when shopping online through GoodShop and AmazonSmile (see and for more!)

There are many ways all year to be part of Jacksonville Main Street. Donations of time, goods, talent, services, products, and cash are all welcome gifts that keep the work going. Resume building internships or Community Service hours are available also! (Call for details). Participation in Jacksonville Main Street also means helping on event dates, committee planning, and coming to events!
