CORPORATE AND COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIPS
It is widely agreed that the presence of community parks and recreational facilities contribute substantially to a corporation’s ability to attract and retain quality employees. Garfield Park is a shining example of a community park that makes a difference in the lives of the city’s business employees and their families on the south side of Indianapolis.
Each summer, an estimated 400,000 of these individuals will visit the park to picnic, swim, stroll the Sunken Gardens or attend a scheduled public event at the MacAllister Center for the Performing Arts, the Arts Center or elsewhere in the park. Since most entertainment events held at Garfield Park are free to the public the financial support we receive from our corporate and community partners is critical. Corporate support increases overall funding for park projects, helps promote community events and assists in funding the youth programs hosted at the park.
Give 2 Garfield is the annual campaign created to inspire park visitors, package the current year’s sponsorship opportunities and promote summer programs scheduled in Garfield Park. We have a wide range of packages ranging from $1500 to $10,000, so there is sure to be a match for your organization. Contact Mark Bowell at 789-0577 to discuss a participation package for your organization.

With individual and family memberships our members receive the FOGP newsletters to keep you informed of our progress and work as well as invitations to special FOGP events.
Each individual, family or organization has unique charitable interests and financial circumstances and we can help you make the most of both of them. There are many ways to give with current or future resources including donations of cash, securities or real property. Please consider leaving a legacy in the community by planning ahead to invest your philanthropy in Garfield Park. Help us ensure that there will be a park for future generations to enjoy!

One way you can assist our fundraising is to buy a brick and have it engraved with a special message. These bricks, to be placed in the plaza between the Conservatory and the Sunken Garden, are a perfect way to honor and memorialize friends and family. This unique gift can recognize a wedding, anniversary or birthday, and makes a meaningful way to remember deceased loved ones. You may have as many bricks engraved as you wish and your $80 per brick investment is 100% tax-deductible. Bricks will be ordered and installed bi-annually.
