WEBINARS/DISCUSSIONS

CAPACITY FUND GRANT DESIGN SUPPORT WEBINAR

The COVID-19 pandemic has made fundraising more challenging than ever, but with the right project idea you can still receive funding through our Capacity Fund Grant. We give out small grants of up to $3000 to community groups dedicated to their local parks, gardens, and green spaces.

Our grants support projects that build community groups’ capacity through outreach, membership, and programming. Join us at the Capacity Fund Grant Design Support Webinar. Our design support offers help with brochures, websites, postcards, banners, and business cards customized to help your group’s outreach efforts. In this session, you will work with our art director to create a publication or website for your community group.

HONOR NEW YORKERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19

Partnerships for Parks relies on our corporate volunteer partners to help care for our green spaces. This fall, we are excited to offer an opportunity to plant crocuses that will bloom in March 2021—brightening city parks and green spaces with their purple blossoms and helping bring hope as we memorialize New Yorkers who’ve been impacted by COVID-19. Please consider making a contribution. Your support both provides volunteer opportunities for your employees and ensures that tens of thousands of crocus bulbs are planted across the city to honor those affected by the pandemic.
