The 2015 Fund for Green-Wood
As an admirer of Green-Wood, you are our partner in helping us to ensure its future. Next year Green-Wood is embarking on three important projects that cannot be completed without the help of our friends and donors. First, we will be moving to the next phase of restoration of the landmarked 19th-century Weir Greenhouse. This magnificent structure, built in 1895, will become Green-Wood Visitor's Center and is an essential step toward ensuring Green-Wood's future, but its restoration is a big task. Second, we are expanding our educational programs, beginning with a brand new Civil War school program examining the lives of Civil War soldiers interred at Green-Wood, using historic primary sources from the archival collections. Third, we are focusing on our grand collection of trees. With the largest collection of mature trees in New York City - numbering almost 8,000 -Green-Wood will soon complete its application seeking official status as an arboretum. That means our arborists will be giving more talks and presentations on our trees, and we'll be able to better document, cultivate, and protect this impressive collection.
These are worthy pursuits, but the costs are high. We truly do need your help. Green-Wood's funding and ongoing support comes from YOU and others like you who love Green-Wood. Make a contribution today and ensure this National Historic Landmark is thriving for generations to come.
