HI. WE'RE REV BIRMINGHAM.
REV is a place-based revitalization and economic development nonprofit working to make the city of Birmingham a more vibrant place. What’s vibrant? We’re looking for a beautiful combination of authentic places and diverse people. We work toward our mission by strengthening places, creating experiences and supporting business owners.
REV focuses our work in Downtown Birmingham and the historic commercial district of Woodlawn. Where ever we work, we always say community leads and design feeds – which means that we examine the pieces of a community and work with stakeholders to agree on a vision and design strategies that fuel it. We confront challenges with daring problem solving and a collaborative spirit to help our neighbors realize their dreams.
REV provides services for Birmingham yaysayers who need help organizing and strategizing; local startups and small businesses in or interested in the city of Birmingham; and developers and investors who are contributing to Birmingham’s renaissance. Learn more about how REV can help you contribute to making Birmingham a vibrant place!
REV hosts a number of initiatives and events that are designed to prove markets where others didn’t believe they exist. Events are a powerful tool to show the potential of a places, programs and businesses. REV’s register of initiatives and events changes as the city changes. Learn more about what we’re doing now.

That includes hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services.
