We have until this Sunday, June 11, to meet our million-dollar goal and begin design work on the project that will return the Greensward to Overton Park. We’ve raised over $850,000 from 700 donors in 30 states and 28 Memphis-area zip codes. It’s time to sprint to the finish line, and the Hyde Family Foundations are helping us do just that.
From now through Sunday, the Hyde Family Foundations are offering a two-to-one match on all donations toward this project, until we meet our million-dollar goal. A gift of any size, from anywhere, is eligible. That means if we can raise $50,000 from the community before Sunday, the Foundations will kick in a $100,000 match, and we will officially meet our goal!
How can you help? Attend one of the fundraising events happening this week. Tell your friends about the match, especially if you have pals in states that aren’t represented on our map. Most importantly, make your gift today.
We couldn’t be more impressed with our community and your dedication to keeping parkland free and accessible. Please consider helping us with this final push so we can get this project underway.
