Stand Up For Salem Inc., is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which was first launched in 1988 by a group of civic-minded residents to stimulate the revitalization of the center of Salem. Since that time SUFS has begun its vision to transform the city’s neighborhoods by fostering resident based planning and volunteer driven projects as an independent and versatile community development corporation.
Stand Up For Salem concentrates on several points of impact to raise Salem City. Under our umbrella, we focus on three points of impact:
Community Development – Through grants, programming, education, & growing relationships, we are committed to making positive, direct impacts to the residents of Salem City.
Economic Development – As a main street organization, we have the unique opportunity to provide indispensable resources & guidance to local businesses, as well as creative services to grow and enhance their presence.
Historic Preservation and Building Arts – Salem City has a rich story told through its buildings and architecture. Through preservation, restoration, & education, we are improving the physical attributes of our city.
