It’s not an organization that goes out and builds space on its own. The best part is that it’s bringing awareness to people in the hood, empowering them, telling them what they can do, giving them tools to actually do it…

Support 596 Acres by Making a Tax-deductible Donation

Thanks to your support we have achieved real results, increasing land access and security for neighbors in NYC. As an example of some of the victories you make possible through your support, in late 2015, after we waged a year-long advocacy campaign with impacted community members, 34 NYC community gardens were transferred to the Parks Department and thereby permanently protected as parkland. 596 Acres originally helped transform 17 of those 34 gardens from vacant lots into thriving spaces through our work together since 2011.

Financial support from our donors at all levels is vital to sustaining this advocacy work and creating and protecting these community spaces. Your tax-deductible support will help build even more community-created and -controlled spaces this year and beyond.

With your help, we can reach more communities, get more neighbors involved, and unlock more fences. Please support 596 Acres by making a tax-deductible donation.
