Gala on The Greenway

The Gala on The Greenway is the Conservancy’s signature fundraising event. While it isn’t possible to hold the Gala this June, you can help sustain The Greenway by making a contribution to the Greenway Conservancy.

Thanks to our generous donors, The Greenway is serving as a vital community resource during the coronavirus by providing an oasis of beauty and tranquility. As people search for healthy and affordable ways to reconnect, The Greenway’s vibrant outdoor space, free public art and cultural programming, and al fresco drinkeries and dining options will be more important to the community and our economy than ever.

With 80% of the Conservancy’s annual funding coming from private sources, the economic repercussions of the coronavirus pose serious challenges to our operations. We’re preparing for $2.2M in lost revenue usually generated by the Gala and other philanthropy, our food trucks, drinkeries, carousel, and other initiatives. We have reduced our budget and received CARES Act funding, but we still need to raise $585K by year end. 

Your gift will bolster programs that are jeopardized by lost revenues, enabling the Conservancy to provide gorgeous gardens, mount new exhibitions of public art, and ensure public safety, now and through re-entry. It will also sustain community partnerships including those with food truck entrepreneurs, fitness centers, farmers, artisans, and other small businesses that operate on The Greenway. 

If you are able, please consider supporting the Greenway Conservancy with a donation in any amount. Your contribution will help us deliver on the promise of The Greenway as a vital public resource in this critical year—and an invaluable gift to our community.
