    This is a challenging time for all of us, and COVID-19 is hitting certain industries particularly hard. Bars, restaurants, and retailers are doing their best to serve their customers through carryout, delivery, and online shopping options, but small business owners need our support.

    We are here to help, with the introduction of the Cincy Card Connection, a gift card matching program to help support your favorite downtown businesses. And you reap the benefits! For any gift card purchase you make at a participating downtown establishment ($20 min./$100 max), 3CDC will send you one of equal value to a similar downtown establishment. ONE purchase supports TWO businesses.

    How it works:

    Buy a gift card from a downtown Cincy business
    Email a picture or copy of your receipt to support@3cdc.org (also include your name, mailing address, and phone number)
    We'll buy a gift card of the same value (up to $100) for similar downtown business and deliver it to you

    NOTE: Max purchases a $100 gift card per establishment. Max $500 per person.

    If you have questions about the program or how the process works, check out the FAQ

    Don’t want to purchase a gift card, but still want to help?

    For individuals or organizations that would like to contribute to the matching fund instead of buying a gift card, please visit Cincy Card Connection to donate to this program. The more funds we receive, the more businesses we can support.

    We hope this effort will help give our downtown businesses a boost during these difficult times, and we want to show our appreciation. Please help us support our local business owners, who make our community a unique and vibrant place to live, work and visit.
