Friends of Garfiled Park

A Great Park Deserves Great Friends!

Dear Garfield Park Friend,

On behalf of the Friends of Garfield Park, Inc., (FOGP) I would like to thank you for your support of our organization over the years. Since our founding in 1998, we have been committed to preserving the values and assets of our city’s greatest park. During this time we have built significant partnerships throughout our community with businesses, charitable organizations and our valued neighbors. In partnership with Indy Parks thousands of people have been touched through the efforts of our group. However, none of this would be possible without individuals like you who are willing to invest with your giving.

This past year has been an extraordinary year of both growth and opportunity for the FOGP. We have completed our Garfield Alive historic trail, continued the full maintenance support of the fountains in our Sunken Gardens, hosted over 10,000 individuals in the park for our Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra concert and fireworks and have seen over 350 young people participate in our Garfield STARS initiative. These are just a few examples of the FOGP at work in the past year and 2016 looks to be another year of great opportunity for us!

As the New Year rapidly approaches, the FOGP requests you join our ongoing effort with a year-end membership gift of at least $50.00. Your contribution will enable the Friends of Garfield Park to continue the work we do in our community. For this investment you will receive regular Friends updates, recognition in our annual report and invitations to our special events. Please consider what you can do, large or small, and together we can make a difference in 2016.

All the best and Happy Holidays!

Mark Bowell
