Partnerships Academy Workshops
Partnerships for Parks (PfP) invites you to join us at one of our many free and open to the public workshops offered year-round! They are a great way to meet, network, and learn the skills needed to get involved with, build, or sustain your park group.

Upcoming Workshop: No 501c3? No Problem! Intro to Fiscal Sponsorship

Is your park group looking for more fundraising and development opportunities but unsure if becoming a nonprofit is right for your group?

Come to this workshop to learn about another alternative: fiscal sponsorship! Our expert speakers will explain how your group can financially partner with an existing nonprofit to take advantage of their 501c3 status. This means more perks — access to charitable donations, grants, tax exempt status— and less paperwork.

At this workshop:

  • Learn the ins and outs of several fiscal sponsorship programs offered by different organizations
  • Hear from community members who have taken this step
  • Get tips for choosing a potential fiscal sponsor
  • Discover if fiscal sponsorship is right for your group

Featured speakers include: TBD

Please note: You can register to attend here.

At Stop ‘N’ Swaps, New Yorkers bring items they no longer need and find things that are new to them. Stop 'N' Swaps encourage reuse, build community, and reduce the waste NYC sends to landfills.

GrowNYC invites you to bring clean, reusable, gently-used portable items such as clothing, housewares, games, books, and toys that you no longer need, and take home something new to you, free! You don’t have to bring something to take something. The only things they don’t take are large items/furniture.

Become a Volunteer

Help GrowNYC create an event where people find things they need and reduce waste! By volunteering, you will create an opportunity for people to bring things they no longer need instead of throwing them away, and find things they do want without manufacturing, packaging, or transportation.

As a volunteer you will help receive, sort, and display the gently-used items that people bring. You might also help keep areas neat, take pictures, or help promote some of the other great work GrowNYC's Zero Waste Program does!

You must be at leat 18 years old to volunteer. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, please email ymihojevich@grownyc.org or create a volunteer profile via this link . Search for the Stop ‘N’ Swap of your interest and register to volunteer.
