This year, REV Birmingham marks a milestone: 10 YEARS since the merger of Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham made us REV!
REV’s mission is to create vibrant commercial districts. Our efforts over the last 10 years have helped to breathe new life into Birmingham. From historic building rehab consulting to our refresh of 20th Street North to Woodlawn Street Markets full of up-and-coming businesses, we’re proving markets in Birmingham where others didn’t see the potential, spurring more investment across a vibrant city.
As a nonprofit, REV needs your help to keep making Birmingham a better version of itself. And, in honor of our 10th year, our friends at Stewart Perry have generously offered to match every anniversary gift you make up to $10,000. Click below to give now!
Your investment in REV has a positive effect on Birmingham. Check out the impact we measured from our work in 2021!
