Thanks to everyone who participated in 500 for the Park, a seven-day campaign to generate 500 donations of any size for the Park, we have met our goal three full days before the deadline, and will receive the generous $25,000 challenge grant from Lorraine and Gordon DiPaolo.
But we aren't done!
Due to the success of this campaign, the Prospect Park Alliance's Board of Directors has issued a second challenge. For every additional gift made by 11:59 pm on Thursday, May 1, they will contribute an additional $20 per gift for Prospect Park. If you haven't had the opportunity to participate, now is your chance!
If you have contributed, we need your help to spread the word! Here is how you can help:
Working in partnership with the City, the Prospect Park
Alliance oversees the day-to-day operation and long-term stewardship of
Prospect Park, and plays a significant role in funding the Parkâs operating
budget. Alliance staff includes arborists, groundskeepers, woodland ecologists,
aquatic specialists and educators. From everyday tasks such as planting new
trees and repairing broken playground equipment, to long-term conservation and
restoration projects, much of the work the Alliance does happens so quietly
that daily visitors might not notice it.
Thank You For Your Support of 500 for the Park!
