Thank you partners. New York City Parks [#GivingTuesday]

What is 

What is #GivingTuesday?

Created by 92nd Street Y — a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back — #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces — collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly — to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.

The Big Ideas Behind #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners — nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals — to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

Provide a day of nature programs at the Park for a public school class
A gift of any amount will help the Park!

Thank you partners. New York City’s Low-Profile Parks to Get Conservancies’ Help .

Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP, said, “We value the City's long-standing partnership with our conservancy partners and look forward to working together to not only promote the long-term vitality of our flagship parks but to develop new ways of bringing their expertise, resources, and passion to community parks where there is great need.”
The partnership between the City and these park non-profit organizations has been vital to ensuring that many of New York City’s most utilized parks are more vibrant today than ever. Their work over the years has supported enhanced maintenance, thousands of volunteers, dynamic programming and critical capital improvements in these parks through millions of dollars in private funding. Now these organizations will expand on their record of assisting community parks by dedicating resources and expertise to reviving park sites for New Yorkers who need them the most through the Community Parks Initiative.
