As a supporter of the Lincoln Park Conservancy, we want to say thank you for all that you do to help us to preserve, protect and enhance Lincoln Park. Our greatest asset in our mission to better the Park is people. We wish you and your loved ones health and peace during this stressful time.
For the health and safety of our supporters, The Conservancy will postpone our Wonders of the Park Gala, originally scheduled for April 24th, 2020. The Gala is our biggest fundraiser of the year and the income it generates is critical to the Conservancy’s mission in the Park. Support from the Gala funds our programming, Park initiatives, stewardship days, construction projects, and our staff, who make this work possible. One-third of the Conservancy’s operating budget comes from Gala proceeds. This year’s launch of the Campaign for North Pond, our unprecedented, three-year restoration plan for the North Pond Nature Sanctuary, makes this income more essential than ever.
The continued financial support of our donors and sponsors is essential during this uncertain time. Without it, our efforts in the Park—including the restoration of North Pond—become precarious, as do our operations in support of this work. The Park can sustain us during this time of social distancing and anxiety, and our mission to sustain the Park must go forward. The work of the Conservancy is vital to ensuring that Lincoln Park remains a vital asset to you, your families, and to the millions who are engaged and energized by the Park’s countless wonders, now and for future generations.
Thank you for your continued support! Now more than ever we need the Park and the Park needs all of us!

The Gala is the Conservancy’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and the 2020 Gala promises to be the best and most successful yet. All proceeds will benefit the Campaign for North Pond, our 3-year, $7 million initiative to dredge the pond to improve water and habitat quality, stabilize its banks to reduce runoff and erosion, and increase the natural areas around the pond to increase habitat for native species.
No matter how you do it, we thank you in advance for supporting the Gala and joining us in celebrating 36 years of service to Lincoln Park!
