The BID manages and markets the Downtown Madison Gift Certificate Program. Gift Certificates are sold online
, at the Overture Center ticket office, and at the University Book Store downtown location. The Gift Certificates are accepted at more than 170 participating downtown businesses. They are purchased by individuals as gifts, and by area companies and organizations as employee incentives. The BID also utilizes the Gift Certificates as part of larger marketing and promotional efforts. Between $50,000 and $85,000 worth of Downtown Gift Certificates are sold every year - which translates directly into dollars for participating downtown businesses.
