New York State
The New York State Recreation and Park Society is pleased to serve park, recreation and therapeutic recreation professionals across New York State. As a not-for-profit organization (501 C3) NYSRPS relies on membership income, events and contributions as our main source of funding.Due to COVID-19, NYSRPS like every organization in the world was hit hard financially. By having to cancel every fundraiser originally planned, the financial freefall is projected to come in at a possible $30,000 or more loss for the year. Mitigation efforts are underway and one we hope our members embrace is our fall fundraising initiative.
In early September letters were sent to all members to ask for a direct financial donation to help NYSRPS through these difficult fiscal times. While there is a suggested amount given, we surely appreciate any and all help you might be able to give. We understand all families have been impacted, and certainly town budgets will be leaving park departments with very tough choices. We are hoping you are able to help out and give to the campaign. Please see the donation form below.
One NY Cares Gives Us More Ways to Give!
The next fundraising avenue is a bit more challenging, at least physically! Grab your friends and family members and join the New York State Recreation and Park Society in this unique virtual challenge. Not only will this get you out and moving but it will also help raise funds for the society! For every person that joins our team NYSRPS will get $10 back, so let your family, friends and neighbors from all across the world know to join us in supporting NYSRPS. You can walk/run/bike anywhere from 200-1000 miles from now until 12/24! Don’t you want to see your name on the leader board? In addition to feeling good about yourself you will also receive a ¾ zip pullover and finishers medal.
Thank you for your support and remember “Together We are Stronger!”
