A tree stands tall because its roots are deep.

Membership in this important group of park supporters is as vital to the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy’s existence as the life-giving roots of your favorite park tree.

Members of The Roots contribute an annual unrestricted gift to the Parks Conservancy of $1,996 or more, in honor of the year the organization was founded by concerned citizens like you. This generative support for your parks is the foundation upon which all of our work is made possible. The Roots cover vital park planning, maintenance, community engagement and fundraising efforts for the Conservancy.

Imagine Pittsburgh’s Parks without the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy – thanks to the dedication of these donors you don’t have to.

Our goal is that one day The Roots will cover our organization’s operating expenses completely, to allow us to more nimbly attract donations from other supporters for specific projects and programs. Membership comes with tremendous benefits including behind-the-scenes tours, exclusive event invitations and donor acknowledgement listings.
