The Elizabeth Park Conservancy welcomes and relies on the support of the business community.  Businesses have proved to be great friends of the Conservancy and the Park by supporting various events throughout the year with sponsorships. 

Your business is giving back to the community by sponsoring the Conservancy. A sponsorship can benefit your business by showing your most valued customers that you are concerned with the needs of a local nonprofit that provides so much to so many. You will receive recognition within the Park, on our website, Facebook, and printed materials as a sponsor. Your company name and logo will be on banners and signs displayed in the Park, on electronic marketing media, on garden display signs, printed materials, and your sponsorship will be recognized in our Annual Report.

Employee Volunteer Work Days

The Elizabeth Park Conservancy welcomes corporate employee groups on certain days throughout the year for volunteer work days in the Park. These days are somewhat limited, because they require quite a bit of staff time to organize and supervise. While the Conservancy relies on volunteers from local corporations to help us keep Elizabeth Park well-maintained, the Conservancy would also welcome a contribution to our Volunteer Fund to assist with the costs of hosting groups of volunteers.

Please contact Peter Winne at volunteer@elizabethparkct.org to schedule your corporate work day and to contribute to the Volunteer Fund.
