Thanks to gifts from Garfield Park friends like you, the charitable organization Friends of Garfield Park, Inc. supports a variety of programs and events, as well as preservation and stewardship activities at historic Garfield Park.
City appropriations for Garfield Park only go so far. Along with public programs and events, the Friends of Garfield Park Inc. supports the preservation, interpretation and safekeeping of the historically-significant sites and landscapes, monuments and landmarks which call this historic park home. In addition, as a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated solely to the support of Garfield Park, the Friends has the flexibility to respond to urgent and unbudgeted needs when they arise.
Central to the Friends’ mission is continuing and preserving the various public benefits of this community treasure. As a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Friends actively engages in raising both funds and friends for the park. A combination of grants and gifts provide the funding support that is so vital to Garfield Park’s important role in the community. The park’s many friends act as ambassadors, connecting this valuable community resource to the greater Indianapolis area and beyond.
Every gift, big and small, makes a difference at Garfield Park. Your gift has a direct and lasting impact on many of the Park’s most popular and long-time programs and events. From youth athletic programs, Vintage Movie Nights and Music in the Garden to preservation of the park’s iconic 1916 Sunken Garden and Fountains; these are just a few of the programs made possible by gifts from Park friends like you!
