    Why should you support GPNA with a donation?

    Membership donations help encourage citizen participation and community involvement to ensure the future development and growth for Garfield Park homes, schools, and businesses. We know citizen participation is crucial as it establishes inclusion, strengthens the neighborhood bond, and embraces the neighborhood’s desire to create a legacy for GPNA.

    We believe that by actively participating in events and getting to know each other, people take greater pride in their homes and neighborhood. The end result: improved property values and crime reduction.

    While your membership donation is appreciated and necessary, it only covers a portion of the cost needed to effectively operate GPNA. When paying your membership this year, please consider making an above and beyond donation above our standard membership levels to help supplement the loss of public funding sources. Memberships and donations will continue to be instrumental in ensuring our neighborhood has long-term financial sustainability.

    You may join online or by mail (see below). Please contact us with any questions.

    Standard:  $25             

    Resident Sponsor: $100
