Attractions Marketing Program Guidelines

The Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB), in partnership with the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, accepts, reviews and processes funding requests from tourism-related, non- profit organizations on behalf of the Tourism Development Council (as qualified per Florida State Statute 125.0104).

Goal

The program provides financial assistance to not-for-profit arts and attractions organizations that enhance tourism opportunities in Lee County. These site-based attractions and organizations provide a different level of service to visitors than events, and by the nature of their existence, attract visitation to the region or offer reasons for visitors to extend their stay in the destination.

VCB partners funded through this program are expected to:

  • Assume a leadership and advocacy role in the community to advance
  • Enhance the visitor experience and encourage repeat visitations through promotions and dissemination of information regarding arts and cultural offerings available in Lee
  • Participate in cooperative promotional efforts with the Lee County VCB, where applicable.
