Gift Card Stimulus Program

Thank you for putting over $20,000 back into our local economy.



The Gift Card Stimulus Program was launched to support area restaurants going through operational changes during the height of the pandemic shutdowns. In an effort to support our members and local Morgantown businesses, the Morgantown Area Partnership established a gift card fund to add a $10 bonus on to the $25 gift cards.

“Sales were down more than 60% at Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, and the Gift Card Stimulus Program helped provide us with cash that we needed to pay our bills, pay our employees, and operate our business,” says Ryan Niceler, Director of Operations WV at Taziki’s. “We will be forever grateful for their support during these scary and uncertain times.”

The program was originally seeded with Partnership funds and eventually carried through to success with six Donating Sponsors: Summit Community Bank, Arrow Engineering, Ascent Consulting & Engineering, Huntington Steel, Ford Lincoln of Morgantown and Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Morgantown.
