Help preserve and sustain our city’s parks and green spaces.

Donate Today

More than ever, we know the important role our parks play in bringing people together. They provide us with a respite from everyday stress, a place to exercise safely, and a gathering place to make family memories.
Please donate today to support your parks and enable us to continue our mission of connecting people with their parks.

Bench Donor

The Charleston Parks Conservancy and the City of Charleston have established a commemorative bench program in the City of Charleston parks and greenspaces. Individuals or organizations who wish to celebrate weddings or birthdays, remember or honor a loved one, or mark other special occasions like retirement, are able to do so in their choice of parks. The commemorative bench program makes it possible to install additional park benches throughout the city’s park system. Funds are also used for park maintenance, horticultural care, and landscape restoration. With these funds, Charleston parks are more enjoyable, more accommodating, and more sustainable for years to come.

Charleston’s city parks are designated as Iconic, Hallmark, or Neighborhood. A park’s location, features, and amenities are factors in determining the park’s designation, and bench dedications are priced differently based on that designation. Bench dedications include the fabrication and installation of a personalized brass name plaque and the bench dedication lasts for 10 years.

Dedicate a park bench to honor or memorialize a loved one or a significant life event.
