By supporting ...the Central Park Conservancy through our #GivingTuesday Facebook fundraiser, your gift will go even further. Beginning at 8:00 am ET on #GivingTuesday, December 1, Facebook is matching donations on at first-come, first-served basis up to $100K per organization! PLUS, a group of donors will be matching donations, so your contribution will AT LEAST be tripled.

Even in the middle of a global pandemic, Central Park never closed. It stands as an essential resource for so many New Yorkers and the Park's health is our responsibility.

Keeping New York City’s 843-acre backyard clean and beautiful requires constant maintenance and restoration. Now is the best time to support the Central Park Conservancy and Central Park. Each contribution—no matter its size—creates a big impact on the Park and for all New Yorkers.

Thank you for your support—and for doing something great for yourself, New York City, and generations to come.

“Nature is not overstimulating in a way that living in a city is—with all its traffic, pressures, and noxious sounds and smells. You can overwhelm your senses to the point that you want to shut them out. Nature does the opposite. It makes us want to open our senses. That's something that many of us urban dwellers really appreciated this spring when some of the noxious elements of living in a city receded. Natural elements came to the forefront.” ––Florence Williams
