This is the season of Thanksgiving and we are especially thankful for you!
Thankful for…your recent donations, as they have fueled our mission for enhanced funding on behalf of historic Garfield Park.
Thankful for…your participation in FOGP sponsored and hosted events as this ensures the evolution of the public benefits. When you invite your friends and family to join you for events such as Friends Night at the Mac + Fireworks, Opera in the Park, ForeGarfield Golf Outing, Indy Jazz Fest, Homebrew Palooza, Farmer’s Market, and the Earth Day Festival it brings more awareness and support for the Friends of Garfield Park and our work on behalf of Indy’s oldest city park.
Because we’re Friends, we want to keep you in the know.
While we aren’t ready to launch the public facing phase of our Historic Fountain Restoration & Preservation Campaign, we did want to let you, our supporting Friends, know that our Board of Directors has been working tirelessly behind the scenes this year. Above and beyond our routine support for Garfield Park, FOGP has invested considerable resources in accomplishing a feasibility study, developing campaign budgets and materials, and starting the conversations with primary supporters such as potential grant makers. The quiet side of the campaign is going well and we thank those of you who may have shared your opinions, intentions and private gifts.
This level of effective advocacy is a key component of our Mission.
And we simply can’t do it without financial support from Friends like YOU!
In this season of gratitude, we humbly ask you to come alongside us, once again, as we work together to ensure the preservation of all things Garfield Park… at whatever level feels right for you, including:
- Memorial Gift to Garfield in any amount: As a way of honoring & remembering someone special
- Garfield Park Booster $125: Enabling youth programs
- Lawton Brigade Membership $500: Supporting special events and youth programs
- League of Kessler Memberships $250: Focused on preservation of historic park assets
You can visit our secure Giving Center at GarfieldparkIndy.org
here and follow the prompts to various levels of giving. Or you can mail us your gift to FOGP, PO Box 33002, Indianapolis, IN 46203.
Thank you so much again for your previous support of the Friends, and I hope you will renew that support now. We’ll keep you posted on all our progress. Oh, and please plan to enjoy The Holidays at Garfield Park Nov 25-Dec 31 and let us show you that Garfield Park truly is…a Park for all seasons!
President – Friends of Garfield Park
