The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) requires program funding and volunteer support to continue to its mission:
ADHDA is funded through revenue sources from the City of Astoria, Memberships, Fundraising, and Sponsorships. These revenue sources are critical to the success of the organization, and ultimately to the overall success of downtown. Volunteer support is also necessary to adequately carry out ADHDA’s mission.
By supporting ADHDA with their dues, members play an important role in keeping our historic downtown district strong and making Astoria a more livable city.
YOU can make an investment in downtown Astoria’s future and help make it a downtown we can all be proud of.
