The 2017 Fund for Green-Wood



Dear Friend of Green-Wood,

During this crazy year, sometimes you just need a quiet place to reflect.

That’s what our founders were looking for too. In 1838, they picked the name Green-Wood to indicate “rural quiet, and beauty, and leafiness and verdure.” In New York City, it’s not easy to find. But thanks to some very enlightened Brooklynites of the early 19th century, we have this magnificent, historic cemetery.

I know that you, too, cherish Green-Wood’s singular beauty and its sense of timelessness. There’s no place like it anywhere else.

I’m writing at year-end to ask for your support. Our goal is to ensure that Green-Wood is here for generations to come. No gift is too small or too large. All contributions to our Green-Wood Historic Fund (our not-for-profit 501c3 organization) are greatly appreciated.

I wish you the best of the holiday season,

Richard J. Moylan
