500 for the Park a Success
May 1, 2014
We did it! Over 600 donors contributed to 500 for the Park, helping the Prospect Park Alliance earn a $25,000 challenge grant from Lorraine and Gordon DiPaolo. After our donors smashed through the original 500-donor goal, our board of directors stepped in and offered an extra $20 per gift for every donation made above the original 500.
Together, we raised a total of $61,670 for Prospect Park!
These funds will help the Alliance in its important work to preserve and maintain Prospect Park. Working in partnership with the City of New York, the Alliance is responsible for the operation and long-term stewardship of Prospect Park, and funds a significant portion of the budget that keeps Prospect Park clean, safe and beautiful.
