Park Pride is the only organization that gains support for parks all over Atlanta and works with communities to improve them. Here are answers to some of the frequently asked questions we get:
Where are Park Pride's offices?
Park Pride is located in Peachtree Center (Harris Tower) on 233 Peachtree St.— Suite 1600. We received free office space from the City as part of our partnership with them.
Does Park Pride serve those outside the City of Atlanta?
Park Pride primarily works with neighborhoods and groups inside the city limits. However, the Fiscal Partner program extends to metro Atlanta, including DeKalb County and other areas. Park Pride has also done advocacy work for Sandy Springs and works closely with the Gwinnett County park system.
What is Park Pride's nonprofit status?
Park Pride has been a 501(c)(3) since 1990, which means donations to the organization are tax deductible.
What advocacy work does Park Pride do?
Park Pride works as a political advocate to maintain and increase parks and greenspace through initiatives such as the BeltLine project and encourages municipal and county governments, such as the City of Atlanta and the Fulton County Commission, to improve parks and increase greenspace acreage. Advocating for the preservation of greenspace, Park Pride led a successful campaign to reverse the Fulton County Commission’s vote to sell six Sandy Springs parks.
Where do you get your funding?
Park Pride receives funds from a wide array of sources—Individual donors, private foundations, grant making entities (private & government) and corporations.
What's the difference between a donation to a specific park and a gift to Park Pride?
When you make a donation through our Fiscal Partner program, you’re giving to that specific park/project. Park Pride only takes a 5% administration fee to process and acknowledge the contribution. A gift directly to Park Pride goes to support our programming—see our list of programs.
Who's on your Board?
We have a broad spectrum of representatives on our Board of Directors, who come from corporate and community backgrounds —see our Board list
