Become a Friend

Thank you for supporting the mission of Eckington Parks & Arts!  With your donation to Eckington Parks & Arts for calendar year ($60/individual or $100/two adults in a household), you'll become a Friend of the organization, receive regular updates via email, and be able to attend and vote at organization meetings. Seniors (65 years and older) can become a Friend for just $30/individual per calendar year.


*Select the PayPal amount (i.e., $60, $100, $30 - seniors only) that corresponds with your membership preference. You can also choose to make a small recurring donation each month! 

Support Our Work

If you or your pup enjoy using Alethia Tanner Park or the Eckington Dog Park, we encourage you to DONATE whatever amount you can to support Eckington Parks & Arts. Your donation helps fund maintenance and purchase of supplies for the Tanner Park Dog Park, and supports community activities and efforts to activate Eckington's public spaces. We also work hard to advocate for a cleaner and greener community.

If you are a regular dog park user, please consider donating more to support its upkeep and improvement!

Friends are vital to achieving our mission.  They help support the mission both financially and with their time.  In return, Friends receive a number of benefits from the organization.

Prefer to Volunteer Your Time Instead?

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 community cleanup on  the 3rd Saturday of the month. Other opportunities will be announced as they arise.


We look forward to having you as a Friend!
