About this funder:



The City Gardens Club of New York City is an educational organization dedicated to the natural environment of New York City.  Its programs are designed to foster an appreciation of nature, especially among young people, and to encourage the creation, restoration and preservation of green spaces throughout the city. Its outreach committees, run by member-volunteers, offer grants, scholarships, educational materials and conservation programs to accomplish these goals.

The mission of the Grants Committee is to bring the beauty of the natural world into the lives of children and adults in all five boroughs of New York City and to sponsor educational programs that help citizens:

  • develop appreciation and knowledge of nature
  • learn gardening skills
  • support the preservation and improvement of the city’s environment.

Funds are distributed (in modest amounts) to a variety of non-profit groups chosen by the committee from the year’s pool of grant applications.  The committee’s goals include:

  • preserving and/or upgrading community gardens and public spaces, both old and new
  • supporting viable start-up projects that offer interactive learning opportunities
  • educating community members in developing gardening skills and supplying them with plants   and garden-related materials.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
