Bring Friendsgiving Home

2020 has been a tough year. At your downtown parks, limited access to philanthropic resources and public health safety measures, such as restrictions on community gatherings, have drastically cut into our nonprofit's ability to raise the funds needed to maintain Center City and LeBauer Parks at their best. Our team has worked hard, prioritizing innovative solutions to incredibly challenging problems and continuing to uphold the goals of our mission, even as budget cutbacks, layoffs, and community stressors took their toll. 

And now, we need you. Like most things in today's world, our annual Friendsgiving Feast will look a little different. While we'll miss gathering with our friends under the pink glow of Where We Met in LeBauer Park, this doesn't mean that we can't celebrate the spirit of love and care for our downtown parks in a new way. 

So this year, we're asking you to bring Friendsgiving home. By signing up to host your loved ones at a private Friendsgiving celebration anytime in the month of November, you can lend your support to Center City and LeBauer Parks and make a direct contribution to the work of a passionate team dedicated to these vital urban greenspaces.

So, how does it work?

Register today to host a private party safely among your nearest and dearest to help raise funds in support of Greensboro Downtown Parks, Inc. Once registered, we will provide you with everything needed to help as you encourage your loved ones to show some love to this organization that you care for so deeply.


Donations may be collected throughout your celebration and gifted directly in support of our work.
