As you probably know, all funds to maintain and care for the Square are from private donations. Your contribution will literally grow the Square’s gardens, allowing us to meet our annual budget of $20,000 for flowers and plantings. And you only need to dig into your pocket not into the earth to make the Square’s gardens grow!
So how does the Adopt-A-Bed Program work?
By donating $500, you’ll be funding one of the Square’s 10 flowerbeds for a growing season! (Spring, Summer or Fall)
By donating $1,000, you’ll be funding one of the Square’s 10 flowerbeds for two growing seasons!
By donating $1,500, you’ll be funding one of the Square’s 10 flowerbeds for all three growing seasons! A whole year of flowers and plants!
We'll even put some "bunkbeds" together - donate $250 and we'll pair you up with another $250 sponsor.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer you bronze plaque immortality. However, we will happily recognize your special support in the Conservancy’s annual report and on our website.
Why You Should Adopt Today
Please think hard about giving more to the Square. Its value is tremendous, especially in a crowded, hurried place like Manhattan. Most of us live in small spaces. Many of us don’t have a front porch or a backyard garden. The Square gives us all of these amenities in one location! A place to sit still, breathe deeply, chat with neighbors old and new. The Italians have a wonderful phrase for it — “dolce far niente” – “the sweetness of doing nothing.” And in The City that Never Sleeps, doing nothing might be the greatest gift of all. And remember that when you give to our Square, you’re not just giving to a park, you’re giving a gift to the entire West Village community!
