2019 Fund for Green-Wood


Dear Friend,

Your tax-deductible gift shows that you share our vision of what a cemetery can be—a one-of-a-kind green space where people from all walks of life come to be inspired by art, history and by the beauty of our natural landscape.

With the support of our donors in 2019 we…

  • Partnered with Cornell University on our urban grasslands project to battle climate change
  • Planted over 400 trees
  • Developed a brand new thematic and standards-based education program for K-12 students
  • Continued to invest in young New Yorkers’ job skills in our preservation program
  • Placed over 200 gravestones for Civil War veterans
  • Led hundreds of tours on diverse topics such as early photography, Tiffany stained glass, baseball, Walt Whitman, and the Battle of Brooklyn
  • Discovered that we are host to five native bat species, 212 bird species, 65 native bee species and a new species of beetle!!

Together, we are reimagining what a cemetery can be. Not only a place to commemorate the dead, but a place to bring their stories, and the stories of New York to life.

I wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season!
