The mission of the Finney County CVB is to attract overnight visitors to Garden City and Finney County for lodging through tourism, marketing, convention sales, and public relations while featuring local amenities, attractions, and events: therefore enhancing the economic benefit and quality of life in southwest Kansas.
Are you hosting an event within Finney County and need extra funding for marketing? We want to help!
As in accordance with our Mission to grow economic impact through tourism, we invite organizations / groups / businesses / clubs to partner with us through our Marketing Co-Op Grant. The purpose of the grant is to financially assist events / marketing campaigns that are being hosted in Finney County that will attract outside visitors and overnight stays to our community.
Specifically, we want to partner with you in spreading the word for your event by enhancing your marketing budget! The more we can market to the surrounding counties and states, the more opportunity we have to bring people to our fantastic community and showcase our incredible amenities! Not only is your event eligible for up to $3,000* in assistance, but we will assist by promoting your event on our social media pages, website, and (if applicable) through printing materials** in the CVB office.
Together, we can impact and grow our community through tourism!
