New York City Program Officer Tracy Perrizo spoke with Inside Philanthropy about Helmsley’s ongoing collaboration with City Parks Foundation. In this feature, Perrizo talked about the New York City Program’s green space portfolio, which includes support for City Parks Foundation’s Catalyst program. This program aims to revive parks and community engagement in historically underserved neighborhoods. The article also outlines our $1.3 million grant towards City Parks Foundation’s Green Fund, which grants money to smaller park nonprofits.
