Business Partners

BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Investing in the Future of the Parklands

The Charles River parklands are essential to the quality of life enjoyed by those lucky enough to live or work along the River. The beauty and integrity of these urban parklands attract people from all over the world to live and work near the Charles River. Managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) diminishing public resources have left these parklands in urgent need of community stewardship and private philanthropic investment.

Since its founding in 2000, the Charles River Conservancy has worked to ensure that the parklands are more active, attractive, and accessible for all—working to fill the gap where public resources fall short. Over the years, the commitment and generosity of the business community in the greater Boston region has been integral to the Conservancy’s success improving the parklands.

By participating in the Conservancy’s Business Partnership Program, your company will join some of the leading institutions and corporations in the area. These corporate sponsors not only invest in the Conservancy’s mission but also provide their employees with fulfilling volunteer opportunities to serve the community and ensure the stewardship and vitality of the Charles River parklands.

Supporting the Charles River Conservancy Makes Good Business Sense

  • Align your philanthropic mission with a proven, highly effective non-profit dedicated to promoting community and enhancing public green space for urban workers and residents.
  • Demonstrate commitment to enhancing the quality of life throughout the greater Boston area.
  • Increase visibility among peers and government officials as leaders in civic engagement and environmental stewardship.
  • Strengthen company-wide employee morale and productivity by participating in team-building volunteer activities such as park cleanups or bulb planting.
