Support the Governors Island Giving Drive

Every year, the Friends of Governors Island raises nearly 75% of the funding needed to care for the Island’s lush rolling hills, vibrant flowers and young forest. In a normal year, the majority of this funding comes to us through events. While we’re unable to gather in person this year, we’re turning to our fellow New Yorkers to help us fill the gap and provide critical care for Governors Island’s open spaces. Make a donation to our Giving Drive today and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
