Corporate Partners Program

The Corporate Partners program of the Friends provides companies and organizations with a range of benefits and special opportunities in exchange for contributions to support our mission. Annual revenue from Corporate Partners provides critical support for the protection, preservation, and improvement of our three historic downtown parks: the Boston Common, the Public Garden, and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Our goal is to create mutually beneficial relationships that provide direct support to our programs and events while also satisfying corporate objectives. A corporate partnership may take many forms. Below are a few examples.

  • Purchase an annual corporate membership.
  • Sponsor a Friends special event.
  • Support a specific park improvement project.
  • Donate employee volunteers for events on the Common.
