Main Street Hanover Transitions to Formal Non-Profit Organization

In January, Main Street Hanover will begin the process of formalizing as a 501c3 organization under the leadership of a new Board of Directors. This transition, which has been in the making for over a year, will begin with the first meeting of the yet to be appointed Board of Directors. Upon approval of by-laws, Main Street Hanover will then apply for 501c3 designation with the IRS and will begin the transition of operations to a new formalized, locally managed and operated, non-profit organization.

“This is an exciting time for the many volunteers who have worked to improve the downtown with Main Street Hanover,” says Manager of Main Street Hanover, Justine Trucksess. “As a designated non-profit, Main Street Hanover will be able to expand our capabilities for fundraising and develop additional methods for financial sustainability. We appreciate the support we’ve received from the community and look forward to another big year
for Downtown Hanover and a big year for Main Street Hanover”

Main Street Hanover is, and will continue to be, a collaborative effort between partners dedicated to our mission to expand the economic capacity of downtown Hanover, thus improving the business environment, enhancing the quality of place, and increasing community synergy.
