Downtown Amherst Foundation



About Us

The Downtown Amherst Foundation (DAF) is a 501(c)(3)
The Amherst Business Improvement District announces the launch of the Relief and Resiliency Microgrant Program to provide financial relief to Amherst-wide small businesses affected by COVID-19 closures, through their newly formed Downtown Amherst Foundation (DAF). The foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and was formed as a means to develop downtown Amherst cultural projects, such as the outdoor performing arts shell, but has shifted its focus to support Amherst economic development in this difficult time. Today, the Downtown Amherst Foundation expands its focus to all of Amherst, MA with the launch of The Relief and Resiliency Microgrant Program, and will be executed and managed in partnership with the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce. The goal is to raise 500K.
