We’re sharing this recent appeal from Groundswell NW, because they are the East Ballard Community Association’s mentor and fiscal sponsor. A tax-deductible donation from you today to Groundswell NW will go toward helping neighborhood groups like us continue to thrive.
Picture, for a moment, the last time you were in a Park. Maybe you were strolling through, walking your dog, taking your child to play, or seeking a peaceful spot to enjoy your morning coffee with a friend.
As you think about it, you realize that parks actually play a pretty important role in your life. You Need Parks.
But have you thought about how much Parks Need You ?
Parks Need You to keep them clean and safe, to care for their plants and trees and bring your family and neighbors together to enjoy them.
Many of the parks, open spaces and habitat in NW Seattle are cared for and loved by community groups, like Friends of Ballard Corners Park, East Ballard Community Association , Friends of Salmon Bay Natural Area, Whittier Heights Involved Neighbors , Friends of Crown Hill Glen, Friends of Sunset Hill-Shilshole Gateway , Sustainable Ballard, Friends of the Troll’s Knoll , Friends of Thyme Patch Park , Ballard Greenways , and Friends of North Beach Park .
At Groundswell NW, we’re honored to serve these community groups and many more in NW Seattle by providing mentorship, awarding microgrants, providing fiscal sponsorship, and advocating for your parks at the neighborhood and city level.
As much as these groups need us, We Need You! Show your support for Groundswell NW by making a year-end, tax deductible donation today.
Thank you for your support, and on behalf of all of us at Groundswell NW, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
President, Board of Directors
