Happy Giving Season!
You keep us afloat! Supporters like you are the reason Governors Island is blooming. The 2014 season has been our most successful season on Governors Island yet! With almost half a million visitors this season, new park grounds, improved ferries, and weekday access, the island is becoming New Yorkers’ favorite summer escape.
In the spirit of trying new things, we’ve become a #GivingTuesday partner. Won’t you help us shine? This year, #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back, falls on December 2nd. Please take a moment today to support GIA and make your impact felt on Giving Tuesday – it’s one day to join with communities, nonprofits, families and businesses to celebrate generosity and make a difference. Make your gift and encourage others to support your favorite place!
