The Young Friends is a group of young professionals from all over Boston who come together in support of the Common, the Garden, and the Mall and raise funds for the care and maintenance of the three parks. Through festive social events, informal gatherings, and volunteer opportunities, the Young Friends engage with their co-workers, neighbors, and peers, cultivating a network of goodwill and philanthropy for Boston’s downtown parks.

While most members are 40 and under, membership in The Young Friends is open to all who feel young at heart and make a minimum annual gift of $25. Young Friends receive our monthly e-news, email updates, and invitations to special events and programs.

Membership gifts to Friends of the Public Garden are fully tax-deductible.
