Thanks to thirty-four generous donors, Freedom Park Conservancy exceeded our first Georgia Gives Day goal of $5,000, raising $5,420 in the twenty-four hour day of giving!
This funding is dedicated to several park improvement projects FPC has identified for 2019, including:
– Eight volunteer work days in the park to remove invasive plants, mulch trees, and address erosion issues
– Enhancement of, and Audubon Society Certification for, our Bird and Butterfly Garden (located at the corner of North Avenue and Candler Park Drive)
– The addition of at least two small native pollinator gardens
– Identifying and preserving snags for woodpecker habitat
Although $5,000 may seem like a small amount, these projects will propel FPC into 2019 as we begin to work with our surrounding communities to enhance Freedom Park for a diverse public. Successful projects will allow FPC to demonstrate our ability to tackle much larger projects in the future and target larger funding amounts from private foundations.
Thank you to our Georgia Gives Day supporters and the many others who have supported FPC financially in 2018. If you would like to make a difference, please consider making a donation today using our secure web portal below.
