70 local downtown businesses participated

$308K in gift card sales (two months)

9 rounds of gift card sales

8,800 gift cards sold

Downtown Tucson Partnership (DTP) and its sponsors stepped up during this challenging time to infuse cash into the downtown community through the DTP Gift Card Incentive Program. Customers supported their favorite downtown small businesses and received a $10 bonus. Here’s how the program worked: Buy a $25 gift card from the Downtown Tucson Partnership for your favorite participating downtown business and get $10 more added for free ($35 gift card total).

70 downtown businesses participated between nine rounds, including restaurants, museums, breweries, boutiques, hotels, grocers, spas, gyms and more. 1,000 gift cards were made avaliable for sale each round and the $10 bonus was possible through a $10,000 sponsor. DTP sponsored the first round with a $10,000 investment and also administered the program.

From its first round on April 3 to the ninth & final round on June 12, the program provided approximately $308,000 in immediate support to participating businesses. Thank you to our sponsors: Bourn Companies, Downtown Development Corp., Downtown Tucson Apartments, Holualoa Companies, HSL Properties (sponsored two rounds), Larry Hecker, Presidio Tucson, Rio Nuevo (sponsored two rounds), Scott Parks, and Tucson Industrial Development Authority.

Thank you to our sponsors!


How it worked

The DTP Gift Card Incentive Program is administered by the Downtown Tucson Partnership.

When you purchase a gift card through our program, your purchase (plus the $10 bonus incentive) goes right to the downtown businesses you’d like to support. After you make your gift card purchase, we order the gift cards/certificates from each business you selected, and DTP mails them to you at the address you provide. Please allow 10 – 12 business days for DTP to process and send out your gift cards/certificates.

Each round was limited to 1,000 total gift cards for sale and each customer was able to purchase up to four gift cards per round.

Terms of Service
