The National Main Street Center announced the launch of the Kevin and Mary Daniels Fund to help stimulate Nampa’s Main Street Program and revitalization efforts in Downtown Nampa. This fund has been established in appreciation for all Kevin and Mary have done for America’s cultural heritage.
Kevin Daniels, owner of Daniels Real Estate based in Seattle, grew up in Nampa and has a passion to help communities thrive. Daniels recently moved to trustee emeritus status on the Main Street board.
The Kevin and Mary Daniels Fund has received nearly $100,000 to date in donations from Main Street board members, colleagues and friends to honor their dedication to historic preservation and help improve facades of Downtown Nampa’s historic buildings. Kevin and Mary Daniels also personally donated to the fund and will present a check to Nampa’s Main Street Program at an invitational ceremony Thurs., June 6, 2019.
Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling said, “Kevin has been a tremendous asset, providing counsel and encouragement to move our Main Street Program forward. We are very excited and appreciative of the National Main Street Center, the contributors to the fund, and Kevin and Mary Daniels. The Kevin and Mary Daniels Fund serves as important catalyst to fuel revitalization efforts in Nampa’s downtown and will be a lasting legacy in our community.”
The fund will be administered by the National Main Street Center and help with rehabilitation projects and historic façade improvements. President and CEO of the National Main Street Center Patrice Frey said, “Kevin and Mary Daniels have made immeasurable contributions to the Main Street revitalization movement nationally. The creation of this fund – which will go directly to a community that means so much to the Daniels family – is a perfect tribute to their work.”
Applications for the fund will open July 17, 2019.
