Whether you’re looking for a meaningful and lasting gift for someone special, or a an opportunity to make a year-end donation that will benefit many, the Friends of Westchester County Parks has dozens of ways to help you make a difference with your year-end giving.

There are programs that allow you to plant a tree or purchase a bench to commemorate a special person or family. You can shop for great Friends logo gear, or give someone a year-long gift membership to the Friends, introducing them to Westchester’s spectacular, 18,000-acre park system and to the organization that advocates for and supports the parks.
