As an ADVOCATESupport the cause…

New York Restoration Project believes that access to nature is a fundamental human right.

We work to ensure that all New Yorkers have equitable access to green space. For over 25 years, NYRP has invested in and stewarded parks and gardens throughout the city’s five boroughs to strengthen communities, promote food sovereignty, and counter environmental and social injustice.

Effectively carrying out our mission requires collaboration, synergy, and understanding of the communities we serve on many different levels. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded into our core identity and we deeply value the unique perspectives, knowledge, and resources that each member of our team and extended community brings to NYRP.

As a VENUE: Host your event…

New York Restoration Project’s community gardens are more than pretty green oases: they are community hubs. Each gardening season (April through October) community members and NYRP hold hundreds of events in our community gardens and you can too! Host public events, such as community celebrations, educational workshops, or other public programs. There is no cost to use the space, for community members and non-commercial entities. Garden events are driven by the community. Community members can celebrate milestones. Or they can work with us to organize events and activities. Through the Community Grant Program, New York Restoration Project and community gardeners, neighbors and partners can work together to bring programming into the gardens.

Be a DONOR: Show that you care…

Unlike traditional conservancies that care for a specific place, NYRP is the only New York City conservancy that works citywide, bringing private resources to spaces that lack the support they need. As the steward of Sherman Creek Park and Highbridge Park in Northern Manhattan, the owner of 52 community gardens across the five boroughs, and the lead private partner of the City of New York in MillionTreesNYC, we focus our efforts in communities where safe, beautiful green space is needed most.


When you support New York Restoration Project (NYRP), your gift allows us to restore and revitalize city parks, maintain NYRP’s 52 community gardens and educate thousands of children about the benefits of nature. Donations at specified amounts are designated or you may customize your gift. Recurring gifts are encouraged. Memorial and Tribute gifts are welcomed.

  • Planned Giving: All donors of planned gifts to New York Restoration Project (NYRP) are recognized and honored as members of  New
     Restoration Project’s Rose SocietyTM – an important group that is helping to secure NYRP’s future. Such gifts help to sustain NYRP’s restoration projects and ensure that the eyesores we have transformed into oases remain clean and green community assets for future generations. And, while the satisfaction of giving back to the community is the primary intent, the value of a planned gift to the donor may also include enhanced tax benefits and possibly some return of income. Your lawyer or accountant may also provide further information on the benefits of planned giving. Planned gifts include:

    • Creating a bequest to NYRP in the donor’s will. Naming NYRP as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.
    • Creating a life income gift plan that pays the donor income for life and then provides a gift for NYRP.
    • Establishing a trust that provides income for NYRP before passing assets to heirs.
  • GalasHulaween is New York Restoration Project’s premier fundraising gala and the hottest Halloween extravaganza in town. It’s been described as one of the “most fashionable, talked-about and dress-to-impress” parties in NYC by The New York Times.


  • Individual: Volunteers are central to our work! Each season, thousands of volunteers help us keep NYC green by planting trees, maintaining public parkland, and caring for community gardens. Join us each week, during the late spring to early fall, to connect with fellow New Yorkers and keep this city beautiful and healthy for everyone!
  • Corporate: Through NYRP’s corporate volunteering program, Seasons of Service, volunteers from New York’s leading companies clean and green community gardens, maintain parks, and plant trees, shrubs and flowers. Our dedicated volunteers also care for newly planted MillionTrees, restore forgotten shoreline, remove invasive vegetation, and bring life to city parks.
