Support what Brings you Joy & Double your Impact

December 19

Each year, Hudson River Park provides millions with a shared and beloved space for celebration, nature, recreation and reflection.

From now through December 31, your gift to Hudson River Park will be matched up to $20,000 dollars. During this giving season — when your donation makes twice the difference — we encourage you to support what enriches and inspires you in your west side backyard.

A gift at any level can make an impact that makes a green impact. Here are a few examples of ways your support keeps HRPK green and growing:

A gift of $50 plants 50 tulip bulbs.

In HRPK, tulips grow community. Each fall, hundreds of volunteers help our horticulturalists plant thousands of tulip bulbs (9,000 this year!). The result? Four miles of green, open space abounding with tulips come spring, a colorful welcome for warmer days, enjoyed by millions of Park lovers like you.

Give before December 31 to double your impact and plant 100 tulips!

A gift of $100 produces two cubic yards of compost to nurture our gardens (that's a pile of compost six feet wide, high and long!).

During 2019, Hudson River Park's Community Compost Program has diverted 430,000 lbs of organic waste from landfills, including 81,000 pounds of food scraps we collected from our community. Our horticulturists use this compost to enrich soil in gardens throughout HRPK – beautifying the Park and reducing our carbon footprint.

Give before December 31 to double your impact and produce four cubic yards of compost (that's a pile of compost twelve feet wide, high and long!).

A gift of $250 maintains 50 square feet of the Park’s landscapes and gardens.

Hudson River Park provides a lifeline of beautifully maintained green space along Manhattan's west side. Lovingly maintained by Park horticulturists, these green spaces provide millions with gardens to admire and lawns for relaxation and play. Your support helps make this possible.

Give before December 31 to double your impact and maintain 100 acres!

A gift of $500 plants 15 new trees along the Park's four miles.

Each new tree we plant along our riverfront brings environmental benefits, filtering air pollution and helping to keep pollutants out of the Hudson River by absorbing rainwater, which reduces storm water runoff. And of course, each of our 2,000+ trees offers beauty and shade to Park lovers like you!

Give before December 31 to double your impact and plant 30 trees!

A gift of $1,000 sponsors five NYC class field trips to HRPK

Hudson River Park's Estuary Lab provides unique hands-on learning opportunities to the next generation of sustainability enthusiasts from across the five boroughs, using the Hudson River waterfront as its classroom.

Give before December 31 to double  your impact and sponsor 10 field trips!

Hudson River Park is not a NYC Park; HRPK relies on private funding for programs, operations and maintenance. That's why your support is so vital.

Plus, with your gift of $50 or more, you will become a Friends with Benefits member, giving you VIP access to concerts and festivals, outdoor activities, discounts at local businesses and more!

Through lovingly maintained public open spaces, community-focused sustainability initiatives, environmental education and more, the Park is building a greener NYC. We hope you'll join us by supporting what you love and helping ensure a green and growing 2020 in HRPK!
