Green isn’t just the color of trees, grass and APF’s mascot the hummingbird. It’s also the color of our newest giving level! We’re proud to announce that on Giving Tuesday (that’s tomorrow!) we’re launching evergreen donations – a sustaining gift level that will allow us to bring playscapes, community gardens, free fitness classes and more to neighborhood parks all over the city.
We know parks and green spaces are what make Austin, Austin. They’re why people move here. They’re why people stay here. They’re what connect us and make our city a wonderful place to live, work and play. We all benefit from the 300+ parks and over 29,000 acres of green space that Austin boasts, but our city falls woefully short in maintaining and caring for it all. That’s why we need your help. Your evergreen gift helps us make our parks safe and accessible for all Austinites.
Your evergreen gift will also mean APF will be a able to save on postage, paper and administrative costs which allows us to invest more of your contribution into trail building, tree care and free programming. Plus, spreading your support over time is easier on your budget, and it gives APF the security of a steady, reliable stream of support that will mean more swimming + parks, more yoga + parks, more mulching + parks and more people + parks!
We hope you’ll join us to kick off this exciting new way to support our parks on #GivingTuesday!
