Partnerships are what make the Downtown Rock Island Partnership work. Our innovative collaborations allow for residents, businesses and civic stakeholders to actively participate in community building. The current efforts of the Downtown Rock Island Partnership can only continue with ongoing support from community partners like you.


No other downtown in the Quad Cities is quite like Rock Island’s. We know this from both from a cultural standpoint and also in the way our organization does business. Our stakeholders make deliberate efforts and take intentional actions to generously provide financial contributions to ensure downtown Rock Island remains competitive in the regional landscape and increases its quality of life for residents.
