Corporate Opportunities

Corporations support the Franklin Park Coalition by donating time, funds, and in-kind items. We hope you’ll get involved!

Volunteer

Corporate volunteer groups come to the park for clean-up days, to remove invasive species, pick up litter, rake leaves, and enjoy the experience of a pastoral park in the middle of the city. Become a corporate partner with a financial contribution and bring a group of up to 100 people to volunteer. It’s a great opportunity for team building among your employees. To learn more, contact: volunteer@franklinparkcoalition.org.

Donate

Corporate funding has supported our youth programs, Woodlands Restoration Campaign, and summer Playhouse in the Park. Whole Foods stores in Boston donated 5% of their profits for one day to restoring the Franklin Park woodlands. Eastern Bank has been a Playhouse in the Park sponsor. KeySpan/National Grid has supported jobs for teens in the park, as well as Timberland. REI donates funds and equipment for a fundraising raffle.

Sponsor

Corporate sponsorships bring great jazz to the park on summer nights and support volunteers. Become an Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park sponsor and see your banner on the summer stage in Franklin Park. Or have your logo on the sleeve of youth t-shirts. Support the walks and tours program and see your company’s name on park maps.

In-kind Needs

From leaf bags to new maintenance tools to food for hundreds of volunteers, corporations have a unique ability to provide simple, quick, easy support for FPC activities. Sappi Fine Paper Company donates tools, money, and volunteer labor. Dancing Deer Bakery contributed cookies to Nature’s Gems, an art exhibit of park-inspired work. Suffolk Construction Company donated staff to the help install the new playgrounds and removed a park eyesore: non-functional park bathrooms covered with graffiti.

Franklin Park brings together the diverse communities around the park. ¬†Join a walking tour, attend a Playhouse concert in the summer, help clear knotweed and other invasive plants–we invite you, your colleagues, your corporation, and your family to become part of the fabric of Franklin Park.
