Support the Friends of Tarrywile Park

The Friends of Tarrywile Park is a private non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation run by volunteers whose mission is to support the preservation and enhancement of Tarrywile Park – a community treasure that consists of a magnificent Victorian mansion and over 700 acres of pristine open space. Your support will go a long way in playing a role with historic preservation, restoration and enhancement of the Park’s buildings and grounds. THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND SUPPORT!

One of the major goals of the organization is to establish its Endowment Fund on a solid footing and to grow the fund over time to provide an on-going source of funding for capital improvements and enhancements to the Tarrywile’s facilities, buildings and grounds. FOT works closely with the Tarrywile Park Authority to identify and implement park enhancements. While the Authority receives funding from the City of Danbury and other sources, it is not sufficient to cover the full costs of operating the park and implementing the comprehensive improvements and enhancements recommended by the Tarrywile Park Master Plan. With the help of friends like you, we can turn the Plan’s hopeful vision of Tarrywile’s future into a reality.

If you really love what Tarrywile Park offers, please don’t be shy about sharing that love by making a contribution at whatever level you feel comfortable. All contributions are fully tax deductible as charitable donations due to the organization’s status as a 501(c)(3) corporation.

Please call us at 203-744-3130 should you wish to talk more with us about how you can help Tarrywile by making a contribution, bequest, memorial donation or gift. We would be happy to work with you to personalize your gift to meet your needs or interests – whether it’s a donation in memory of someone who loved Tarrywile and the outdoors or a gift targeted to provide an item or program important to you.
