President’s Circle

President’s Circle members help ensure the Park’s current health, as well as guarantee its future well-being for generations to come.

President’s Circle members are key partners in helping sustain Central Park on a daily basis, providing significant funding through unrestricted gifts of $10,000 or more. With your generous gift to the Central Park Conservancy, you are investing in the future of Central Park and the City.
