About Summerville DREAM
We are a 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Summerville by enhancing the aesthetic, cultural, social and economic aspects of the downtown area, while preserving its historic identity. Affiliated with Main Street South Carolina, the National Main Street Center, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Summerville DREAM promotes downtown revitalization through event coordination, business education, advocacy, beautification and enhancement projects, tourism promotion, and marketing historic downtown Summerville to residents and guests.
We operate using the Main Street Approach, which uses both hard data about our community and input from its residents to develop a vision for our downtown. This vision is addressed through four separate committees - Economic Vitality, Promotion, Design, and Organization - each of which acts on different elements of the vision to produce both qualitative and quantitative outcomes. Our goal is to improve the quality of life in downtown Summerville, and the Main Street Approach gives us the opportunity to do so in an organized, measurable way.
DREAM is fortunate to have had strong professional and volunteer leadership throughout our history. We are blessed today with an outstanding team of volunteers, professionals, and community partners that support and drive our work.
Summerville DREAM is committed to the highest possible level of transparency. In that spirit, we are pleased to offer our most recent annual report, as well as our most recent IRS Form 990 filings, for your information, firstname.lastname@example.org
