Mission Statement

Description

The Fort Greene Park Conservancy proudly serves Fort Greene Park and our community through free programming, park planting and maintenance materials, staff support and a comprehensive advocacy effort. The Conservancy's operating budgets since 2010 has run approximately $150,000, not including substantial in-kind professional services and donations.

Over the past decade, the Conservancy has been instrumental in bringing over $10M dollars of restoration and capital projects into our Park. This includes $2.55M allocated for the comprehensive renovation of the Willoughby Street Entrance, as well as an additional allocation of $3M in FY2015 for the restoration of the park's pathways. For over 18 years, all of this focus on the park (+30 free events, salaries for parks staff and advocacy for capital dollars) has been accomplished by an all volunteer board and by support from our community. Now, the Conservancy is entering an exciting new age of development, having recently hired two full-time staff members to support the advocacy work of our executive board members.
