Giving to Central Park Conservancy

For 160 years, Central Park has provided New Yorkers with a scenic retreat from the stress of urban life, and has become an integral part of New York City’s culture, history, and economy.

Moreover, a thriving Central Park has proven to be a social and economic engine for New York City, responsible for more than $1 billion in annual economic activity and revenue for New York City.

Central Park Conservancy was founded in 1980to restore, manage, and enhance Central Park for the enjoyment of all – and is committed to maintaining and improving Central Park in a beautiful and healthy state for generations to come, ensuring its continued impact on the City of New York. The Conservancy relies on private contributions, including from Corporate Partners, to raise 75% of the $57 million annual parkwide budget.

As the organization entrusted with the responsibility of caring for one of New York's legendary public spaces, our work is founded in the belief that citizen leadership and private philanthropy are the keys to ensuring that Central Park remains healthy, beautiful and thriving.

Projects and group sizes are determined based on the Park’s needs, and may include weeding, painting benches, planting ground cover, or raking leaves. Your company will be acknowledged on signage displayed in the work area while activities are underway. If you would like to schedule a picnic after your volunteer experience, the Conservancy can provide vendor names and location suggestions.
