Support Your Park
Socrates is an independent non-profit organization that is 100% reliant on fundraising to maintain and program the New York City public park that we call home! Your donation makes it possible for us to keep the Park blooming and beautiful; offer free admission to our grounds, art exhibitions, and activities & events – ranging from yoga classes to nature workshops to cultural festivals; supporting artists in creating new and important work; and continuing to employ our staff that makes it all possible. Help the Park continue to thrive by making a donation today. Click here for a one-time donation or use the button above.
