Prefer to Volunteer Your Time Instead of Donating Money?

In order to make Eckington Parks & Arts accessible to the entire community, we offer an alternative path to those who are interested in becoming a Friend! Instead of a monetary donation, you can choose to donate 12 hours of your time per calendar year (at least 5 hours completed within the first 6 months).

If you are interested in this option, please complete the accompanying form to let us know. We will follow up with information on our volunteer tracking form. The most common volunteer opportunity is our bimonthly community cleanup on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month. Other opportunities will be announced as they arise.

We look forward to having you as a Friend!

Not interested in being a Friend, but still want to DONATE?

If you, your family, or your pup enjoy using Alethia Tanner Park, we encourage you to DONATE whatever amount you can to support Eckington Parks & Arts. Your donation helps fund maintenance and purchase of supplies (e.g. dog waste bags, regular cleaning) for the Tanner Park Dog Park, and supports community activities and efforts to activate Eckington's public spaces.

For reference, most members of the community donate at least $25 toward supporting and activating our park and neighborhood public spaces.


We value partnerships with local businesses and support from larger donors.

Please read up and reach out if you'd like to work together!
