Corporate Volunteer Days
The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy welcomes the opportunity to work with companies and community organizations on volunteer projects. We encourage you to involve your business or members with the parks by setting up company volunteer days with us. We will work with your staff to develop a volunteer project that fits your schedule and interests.
Some 2008 company projects have included tree plantings, invasive vine removal, installation of thousands of daffodil bulbs, and litter removal. Volunteering with the Parks Conservancy is a great investment in the community and vastly increases the amount of work that can be accomplished by our staff.
To get your company involved, please contact Bill Ferguson, Development Officer for Corporate and Government Relations, at 412-682-7275, ext. 209 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of the greatest ways to help is to support the Parks Conservancy's endowment. This crucial support will ensure the health and maintenance of our treasured parks for generations to come. The Regional Parks Master Plan outlined a 20-year blueprint for parks restoration, and building our endowment is crucial to ensuring that these projects are completed.
