1,000 Strong, But We’re Not Done!

Thanks to the outpouring of support from the Prospect Park community, the Prospect Park Alliance has reached 1,000 donations and unlocked a $50,000 gift from Lorraine and Gordon DiPaolo.

But we’re not done!

We’re challenging our fans to help us reach $45,000 in donations. If we break our goal by midnight Tuesday, we will raffle off four VIP seating area tickets to the New York Philharmonic in Prospect Park.

Prospect Park is your Park. Let’s show it some love. These funds are critical to keeping the Park green and beautiful, particularly in summer, our busiest season.
It is not too late to be a part of the 1,000, please spread the word and donate today! 

Then, help us spread the word by:
Funds from 1,000 For The Park will go toward the important work of the Prospect Park Alliance, a non-profit organization that works in partnership with the City to care for the natural environment, restore historic design and provide public programs and Park amenities. The Alliance funds a significant portion of the Park’s operating budget, and employs three-quarters of the Park’s staff.
