City of Bellingham Tourism Promotion Fund
We applied for our first ever grant in October 2010, and we got it!
“The purpose of the Tourism Promotion Fund is to promote eligible tourism and cultural activities within the City of Bellingham. Eligibility is broadly defined to encourage wide participation and innovative proposals. Activities funded through the Tourism Promotion Fund increase economic activity by bringing tourists to Bellingham.” – Tourism Promotion Fund site
We’ll be promoting the Museum and our special events in the commercial, general aviation, ferry and train terminals, as well as finishing up our redesigned web site. Thanks to going through the application process, we’ve made some great contacts in the local community. Our thanks to the City of Bellingham, the selection committee, and StoreyCo.
Beginning in May 2011, HFM will begin a 6-month online radio advertising campaign with the Cascade Radio Group’s primary Bellingham/Whatcom County stations: KAFE, KGMI, KISM and KPUG. If you listen to any of these stations online, you’ll come across our ads! You might also catch us from time to time on Mike Kent’s Saturday morning show on KGMI, and in a couple of other places on the station web sites. Keep you eyes and ears open!
