Partnership For Parks IMP-ACT DAY

Now more than ever, we need community support to keep our parks clean, green, and vital. Join us to make an IMP-act on August 8th or apply for a matching fund grant to care for your local park. Also, check out SummerStage Anywhere for live performances and more all summer.


As the city recovers from COVID-19, emerging from the epicenter of this global pandemic, we face the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and a new wave of challenges. With the Parks budget cut by 14%, we need community support to ensure our parks can thrive.

We invite you to take action by joining us on It’s My Park IMP-act Day!  After a five-month suspension of It’s My Park—our signature service program engaging volunteers in local parks across the city—on Saturday, August 8th, we will welcome back dedicated community groups and new volunteers alike at beautification projects across the city, ushering in a new way of working with your community in your local greenspace safely. Find a project below.  

Can’t volunteer on August 8th? Contact us to join a project, volunteer as a group, or lead your own project as we continue to reopen It’s My Park, or find out about ways to engage with us online.



Planning for the future of your park? The Partnerships for Parks Crowdfunding Challenge provides up to $2,500 in matching funds to approved community projects that are hosted through an ioby crowdfunding campaign.

Projects benefiting an NYC green space—including parks, community gardens, street trees, and green streets—are eligible to have their ioby crowdfunding campaign matched. If approved, Partnerships for Parks contributes one dollar for every dollar raised up to $2,500. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis so apply now!



Join us for Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Anywhere, a free digital series highlighting genres that deeply represent New York City: Contemporary Dance, Global, Indie Rock, Latin, Hip Hop, and Jazz.  

From Brazilian pop star Pabllo Vittar to indie darling Waxahatchee to jazz saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings and more, join us on the SummerStage social channels (Facebook, InstagramYouTube, Twitch). Tune in for live performances, one-on-one interviews, arts programs for families, exclusive DJ sets, and more this summer! 

Partnerships for Parks is a joint program of City Parks Foundation and NYC Parks that supports and champions a growing network of leaders caring and advocating for neighborhood parks and green spaces. We equip people and organizations with the skills and tools needed to transform these spaces into dynamic community assets.
