Help Glen Echo Park Offset the Impact of COVID-19

About the Project

We hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this health crisis. We know that our entire community has been impacted, but we are trying to keep Glen Echo Park going and if the Park is special to you, we hope that you will support us. 

Glen Echo Park is an extraordinary gathering place for the community to engage in a broad range of programs and events. Each year, the Glen Echo Park Partnership collaborates with over 50 organizations and 100 independent instructors to present thousands of visual arts, music, dance, children's theater, and nature programs that serve over 360,000 visitors. 

The Coronavirus has had a devastating economic impact on the Glen Echo Park Partnership -- our financial losses to date are estimated to be $450,000 -- almost a quarter of our annual budget. While helping to offset a portion of these losses, your gift at any level will be matched up to our $10,000 goal by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.

We also maintain the Park's historic facilities, including the Spanish Ballroom and the Dentzel Carousel. As a bit of good news, repairs and repainting work is nearly completed and riders of all ages will be able to enjoy the Carousel when it reopens!

How these funds will be used:
Your contribution will help support Glen Echo Park's artists and creative community. Specifically, funds will cover major ongoing expenses while all on-site programs and income are suspended. 

We especially need to continue to pay and retain our staff members so that they can work remotely to implement new ways to connect our artists with the community -- such as through virtual exhibitions and other online programming -- while also working to reschedule classes and events and set the stage for when the Park is able to reopen. 

As news develops minute-by-minute around COVID-19, it is uncertain as to when the Park will once again welcome visitors. However, we know that when that time comes, people will be eager to gather at the Park and we want to ensure that our artists, studios, children's theaters, dance presenters, and other partners are ready and able to resume programming.

Once again, your gift at any level will be matched and all contributions will have an immediate impact on helping Glen Echo Park get through this crisis. Thank You!
